International Talk Like A Pirate Day

Well shiver me timbers.  It be September 19th.  Did you know that September 19th is International Talk Like A Pirate Day?

Other great things that have happened on September 19th:
1778 – The Continental Congress passes the first budget of the United States.
1961 – Betty and Barney Hill claim that they saw a mysterious craft in the sky and that it tried to abduct them.
1959 – Nikita Khrushchev is barred from visiting Disneyland.

But the best thing that ever happened on September 19th was Jake and Molly getting hitched.  When they got engaged, Jake didn't come up with the most romantic proposal.  He basically said to Molly, "If you aren't doing anything for the next 20 years or so would you like to get married?"  For whatever reason, despite that lame proposal, Molly agreed to marry Jake, and this year marked their 20th anniversary.  So since Jake had technically only asked Molly to marry him for 20 years, this year marked the end of the contract.  Jake took Molly out to a nice dinner and asked for a 20 year contract extension.  Did Molly agree to the contract extension????  Yes. 

So, what do Jake and Molly have planned for the next 20 years?  Jake is trying to get Molly to agree to incorporate Talking Like a Pirate into their anniversary celebrations.  Molly hasn't agreed to that yet, but Jake is still trying.  Yo ho, yo ho, the pirate's life for me.
