...Following the hectic May Birthday schedule, the weary crew of the burned, battered and just plain abused pirate ship conclude their 10 or so day cruise around the Atlantic Ocean. Well-rested and refilled with rum barrels, the ship makes a course towards it's next destination. Someone calls out "Where to now, Captain?". Isa replies, "Let me make a few calls and double-check." After several furious phone calls and lots of muttering, the crew hears Isa shriek, "They're both lost!!! Plot course to Tahiti!! That's where I'd be if I were lost!!!"
...Meanwhile on some small spit of beach, Purdy and Beerman crawl out of the surf...
Purdy: "Beerman, this doesn't look like O'Hare Airport to me."
Beerman: "Sure it is - there's a landing strip just over that hill."
Purdy: "No it isn't."
Beerman: "Yes, it is."
Purdy: "Is not!"
Beerman: "Is too!"
And in a fevered pitch, the two castaways begin hurling coconuts at each other, all to the amusement of the monkeys in the trees. Oops - knocked one of those monkeys clean off that branch. That's gonna hurt...
...Meanwhile, the ship has changed direction and heads toward Tahiti in search of the Birthday Girl and Boy. As it sails slowly onward, the crew has time to find the sheet music for the real Happy Birthday song and practice. Voices blend together as they sing...
I'm goin' back to Salome
Things could get ugly if I stay
And I was just leavin' anyway
I could sink or swim
But then again
I could go back to Salome
HAPPY BIRTHDAYS HEATHER AND KRIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here's knowing you will have a wonderful day (June 7th) filled with friends, food, liquor, music, more liquor, more music, maybe some more food, and much more liquor!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Don't expect pressies as we need the money for the beer fund.)
... As the sun goes down on the little spit of land, Purdy and Beerman have run out of coconuts and beaned almost every monkey in proximity. Last seen (or heard), they are now trying to find a soccer ball named Wilson.
As the sun continues to go down, Isa is tired of trying to get everyone to sing the Birthday Song and goes off to drink some rum. She thinks Tahiti is only 14 days away as the crow (or albatross) flies...
PS: Isa knows these two are way early but since she will be off celebrating them, she won't have time to post...
