Aaarrrrr Matey!

In honour of "International Talk Like a Pirate Day" I found the following in an article. I thought it was a very apt description of how I try to live my life...

Anybody can throw on a plumed hat, say a few "arrr's" and label him or herself "pirate," but I learned the pirate you wear within, the pirattitude, is far more important than the pirate gear you put on the outside. True pirattitude means living your life the way you want to, with no apologies. It means never having to keep up with the Joneses, or the Davy Joneses for that matter. It means not settling for the mundane. Having pirattitude means having the courage to question authority, and knocking it on its arse if that's what's called for. Pirattitude means living and loving passionately, having a zest and zeal for fun and appreciating the little things in life like a homegrown cherry tomato, a dog who misses you when you're away at sea and rum. Pirattitude is seeing life for all its possibilities, grabbing the cannon by the balls and firing away into the unknown for the sheer adventure of living on the edge. Pirattitude means being free and living freely. And acquiring doubloons. And rum. Appearing on Wife Swap made me understand that even without the corset, I am really a pirate because of who I am inside and what I so strongly and passionately believe in. And now before I accept my shiny crown and scepter, can we talk about world peace?
