First Mate


I receive souvenirs from students once in a while; this is one of them:

a pirate made from a coconut husk.

I wasn’t sure what to do with it at first, but I finally decided to hang it from the mirror in my van.

It’s pretty cool; I kid you not.

I call him Aaarrrchie!


note: since I’ve had this I’ve started spelling my name Aaarrr O S S … the bank staff don’t like it very much.

  1. Sometimes it’s not the gift but the thought behind the gift…And still wondering about the thought!

  2. Thanks for the comments.

    bearmancartoons: yo-ho-ho!

    asklotta: most people know I like weird stuff … so I’m usually pleasantly surprised.

  3. You are one lucky pup, you are! Everybody should have a pirate coconut husk!

  4. S. Le: it is pretty cool … I may have to keep my van forever now … or the rearview mirror at least.
