I have heard about the day but I do not understand it.The little enigma always had a pragmatic view on things, I do admit, and I always enjoyed discovering her opinions and how she'd explain them.
I can talk like a pirate any day I want.
And I do.
So I don't need a special day for it.
But that's the other thing. This day is just too damn close to Martha leaving. Two years ago on Talk Like A Pirate Day, she was quietly dying, in the last stages of liver failure. Five days later, she was gone.
I'm not trying to lapse back into the maudlin here, but you'll pardon me if I'm not quite so crazy about the day. There may be a bunch of Gosling's tossed back in her honor over the weekend, but that's as far as I'll go.
