A Pirate's life for me

Saturday Nov 15/08. Pirates Week Float Parade. GeorgeTown. Where all anyone could see were pirates with swords, running up to random bystanders and 'pretending' to slash their throats. Even dogs were in on the Pirate action, looking for their next victim (do not miss the Pirate hat on his head).

Police Officers were not spared. Pirates charged toward the cop that stood right by us, while one of them pulled out his sword and held it flush against the cop's neck, a little aggressively I might add, Arrring at the same time. The cop all cool and zen like, says: It's going to take a lot more than that to scare me.

Me with my eyes wide open, shocked at this display of what would normally be considered enough to haul one's butt to jail. I mean you've got assault on a cop with a deadly weapon. That's more than enough. I looked at the cop and said: Well, I guess this is the one day they can get away with doing something like that to you. He smiles and says: Oh, you got that right.

Of course, I was a little slow in capturing that shot but I did get the Pirate's next victim. Although I don't know she wasn't afraid...
