When a trend has gone too far

So I’m at the airport, waiting for the fabulous Laurie Halse Anderson‘s flight to get in, and I see a man walk past with a pirate-themed pet carrier.

I was filled with an urge to ask, deadpan, if his cat was really a pirate.

    have fun with lha and give her a hug from me.

    also: as you know, i think pirates are muggers in boats, and i don’t understand why everyone is so into them. cora agrees, or would if she had a brain.

    I spent the summer of 1995 logged on to a Star Trek based MUD, as a Klingon freighter captain, talking like a pirate with my navigator. Really, it was all his idea (her idea? no, probably, ‘his’). Sometime between then and now, I got really sick of them and your post gives me hope that like-minded people will prevail.
