Arr You Ready for "Talk Like A Pirate" Day?


If you haven't signed up for my Carol Kent giveaway, it's not too late! Be sure to check out Carol's latest DVD project ~ it's awesome! :)

Today is International "Talk Like A Pirate" Day!

We've never celebrated "Talk Like A Pirate" day before, but maybe this year we'll give it a try! We're always on the lookout for new "Monday-Fun Day" ideas!
:)

When we were talking about this yesterday, my little Sarah's first question was, "How do you talk like a pirate?" Good question! We spent yesterday practicing. :)


Here's some helpful hints we discovered...
5 Basic Pirate Words

Ahoy! - "Hello!"

Avast! - Stop and give attention. It can be used in a sense of surprise, "Whoa! Get a load of that!" which today makes it more of a "Check it out" or "No way!" or "Get off!"

Aye! - "Why yes, I agree most heartily with everything you just said or did."

Aye aye! - "I'll get right on that sir, as soon as my break is over."

Arrr! - "Arrr!" can mean, variously, "yes," "I agree," "I'm happy," "My team is going to win it all," and "That was a clever remark you or I just made." And those are just a few of the myriad possibilities of Arrr!

Be sure to check out your pirate name, and if you really want to get festive, go here and you can turn all your email/FB updates/and tweets into pirate language. Oh my!

But who knows, I might throw in a "Talk Like A Pirate" treasure hunt later today!
What do you have planned for your Monday Fun-Day today??
Hearty thanks fer stoppin' by *She Sparkles*!
