26 Nov Self Promotion
Having dutifully signed on yesterday, PJ decided it was high time for a promotion. Reckoning that he served his time before the mast on the pulpit, he promoted himself from ordinary Jack Tar to midshipmen. He has taken a berth on the quarterdeck.
I discovered a decent size flying fish tangled in some line on deck. It was big enough for the frying pan or Salty, but I wondered what PJ would do with it. I offered it to him and he looked like he was ready to drill a hole in my hand with that beak. My courage waned and I tossed it overboard. PJ was off the pushpin in a blink and he and the fish hit the water at the same time.
PJ has his fish, I still have all my fingers.
