I'm still on the fence as to how I feel about children as a species, but I did have an amusing conversation while at the docks today.
I was tying up my boat after going out for an afternoon sail, and was approached by a little girl. She introduced herself (Molly, I think), and I introduced myself as James Hook. She asked me what I was, and I told her I was a lawyer.
After inspecting me and my boat with a shrewd eye, she replied that no, I was clearly a pirate.
I tried explaining that lawyers aren't really all that bad, but she was insistent. "Your name is Hook," she explained, in that very logical way that children have, "You're missing a hand, and your boat is called The Jolly Roger. You have to be a pirate."
So I winked and told her not to tell anyone, and she ran off quite happy that she'd met a real live pirate.
So there we are, then. James Matthew Hook, esquire. A pirate.
