A Pirate's Tale
A friend told me her little girl likes pirate books and I can't sleep. Give my addled mind a set of idle hands and anything might appear. In this case, it's a pirate story, but not just any story. This is the toddler version of my life as a pirate.
Once upon a time a man left home to make his fortune in the world. He built great and wonderful things, but they tended to lean
and sometimes fall down. One day he built a house and it fell on him.
he tried to fly a desk
in an office,
but he couldn't work from 9 to 5.
Finally, he went to sea and became a pirate and he was happy but his head hurt in the morning a lot.
He sailed the stormy seas for many years in his pirate ship,
staying one step ahead of the royal navy and
collecting much booty;)
Finally, he met the most beautiful girl in all the world and they were married.
She became his pirate queen.
Soon, they had a baby girl and
she became a pirate princess.
And they gave her a pet. Black Beard, the pirate dog.
