Jim: Painful Losses

The pirate frigate tacked windward away from Port Royal, driving into the waves. Disturbed seagulls flapped around the rigging, raucously screeching above the saltwater spray.

Captain Twist noticed Pegleg Tom’s new hardware. “How did ye get that hook, Tom?” he asked.

Tom looked down at his brass appendage. “The hand was bitten off by a shark, Cap’n.”

“And the patch?”

“Arr!” Tom growled, “One of those blasted gulls unloaded broadside right in my eye.”

“Seagull shit took out your eye?”

“Not really, Cap’n,” Tom grunted. “You see, the flying rat pegged me on the same day I got this hook.”
