Happy ‘Talk Like a Pirate’ Day

September 19th is International Talk Like A Pirate Day! Ahoy, Matey! Did you know that today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day? It’s a day just for fun, a day to let out the pirate in each of us. John Baur and Mark Summers created the concept of International Talk Like a Pirate Day on June 6, 1995. While playing racquetball, they began to talk to each other in Pirate-speak.” After leaving the court, they decided that there was a need to create this day. After much thought, Mark Summers selected September 19th as the date. This was his wife’s birthday. So, he thought it would be an easy date to remember. And so, International Talk Like a Pirate Day was born.

We like “just for fun” days and we know you do, too. Practice up your “pirate-speak” today!  The conversation will be lively, and you don’t want to be left behind. Today, everyone will be talking the talk, if not walking the walk. It is not a requirement to dress like a pirate today. Just talk like one. Are you a Pirate at heart, or in your soul?
