Salty Does His Trick
Salty as you may know is hitching a ride all the way around the world. It’s not so much the adventure or challenge given that he has seen it all before but that I’ve promised him fish. Especially flying fish and they are hard to come by in the North Pacific.
Salty has yet to lower himself to speak to me but he is not above taking his watch. I’ve got a picture to prove it as his real owner assured me that Salty would not lift a finger to save a life. Like every good Jack, Salty the Silent can steer a ship. I was gobsmacked to find him taking a trick at the helm.
Although we’ve not had words, Salty can glare. For the record, here are the different ways Salty has glanced my way: with alarm, disdain, disapproval, disgust, indifference, indignance, and most recently aghast. I shudder to think what will finally make him speak. Hopefully, it won’t be to say goodbye!
