I work at a university and this Monday, the dean of the business school made a surprise announcement to the whole faculty that I’d written a book. Fiction.
I didn’t even know that he knew about it (thanks Sue, thanks Sandra) but heck, it wasn’t a secret, and once I stopped blushing I thought maybe a few people would read it. That would be cool!
But could I leave it alone? Oh no.
The next day, Tuesday, was International Talk Like a Pirate Day so I decided to get all brave and edge my Introvert needle just a tiny bit towards Extrovert.
Monday night, I made cookies and cut them out into shapes that I thought were quite fun.
I shared them at the big school-wide coffee date we have every Tuesday morning. I was the only one who got my pun. I even had to explain it to a puzzled dean, who laughed politely.
When that happens, you know what we say on International Talk Like a Pirate Day?
Wishing you fair winds and following seas,
