On a Daddy-Daughter Day to the nearby (30 miles away) coastal SeaQuarium, Alice spied one of those cardboard-figures-with-the-face-cut-out things. It was a pirate. Alice couldn’t resist it and shoved her head through the hole.
A: “Daddy! DADDY! Look at me!”
Very nice, Al.
A: “What do I look like?!”
(It has been a looooong day, and I’ve not been feeling 100% this week)
You look like an Alice, who has stuck her head through a bad cardboad pirate’s gaping facehole.
A [witheringly]: Daddy, you have NO imagination.
The SeaQuarium was in full summer holiday theme mode, and this year, it’s pirates. There was an inevitable treasure hunt. At the end of the treasure hunt, the girl in the gift shop actually said “Avast, landlubbers” with absolutely no enthusiasm. When I made a sympathetic comment about how fed up she must be of all this, she then confided in a low voice that although the costume was actually great, the constantly-looped soundtrack of Official Disney Sea Shanties got on her tits.
