ARRR You Ready for a Move?

Sometimes you just need to have a little fun.

Actually, the need for the healing power of random, silly fun was the driving force behind the creation of International Talk Like a Pirate Day. Which is today, September 19. Enjoy.

What? You’ve never heard of it? For shame! Where ‘ave you been, ye landlubber?

Actually, you probably aren’t alone. There is a long and lush tale about how the day actually came to be, but we’ll try and summarize: back in 1995, two self-proclaimed non-athletes, John Baur (aka Ol’ Chumbucket) and Mark Summers (aka Cap’n Slappy) were playing racquetball. Quite poorly, they would add.

And when an errant shot caused one of them to crash into the wall with a resounding, “ARRR!” the idea for Talk Like a Pirate Day was born. Well, actually, it would actually take almost seven years, and the improbable assistance of renowned author, nationally syndicated columnist, and Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Dave Barry — but the day would be made official in 2002.

With so much doom and gloom hovering over the news these days, sometimes a little random silliness can be just what the doctor ordered. And while we are all about providing the highest level of real estate service here at d’aprile properties, we also can’t pass up on the chance at some good-hearted fun.
