I saw a pirate yesterday. I was walking down State toward that deli that always has Seinfeld on, and he came in from a side street and turned briefly down the street.
He was well camouflaged, wearing jeans and a blue work shirt. But I could tell he was a pirate because he was bald, had one large gold earring, and was wearing an eye patch. He was drinking a Dr Pepper, and I think I heard a subdued “Arr” as he crumpled it into the trash.
I was searching for some information on malaria control for a discussion here at work, and, while I didn’t find exactly what I was looking for, I found something even better. I bring you the Malaria Game (Ages 16 and up).
You can be either a parasite or a mosquito!
