I’m on the phone with my wife. She’s in her car and I hear the following things-Sirens, a loud crunch, my wife screaming, and then the beep of our call being cut off.

Five of the longest damn minutes of my life pass by.

She calls back. She’s okay. She had stopped for an ambulance and someone rear-ended her. She’s a bit sore, the guy who hit her is very sorry and the ambulance actually stopped to check on her. The car looks fine but now it makes grindy noises. The police, insurance and hitter are very helpful and everything will work out fine.

But for five minutes I didn’t have a wife and that was some scary shit.

So let’s go back to Pirate Week. Let’s realize that the good times can end at any moment and that we need to live life NOW and enjoy it like drunken pirates in a brothel. Let’s hoist a hug of something delicious and squeeze something soft or hard as your tastes may dictate.

Enjoy what you have today and everyday.
