Mickey has a fascination with pirates so when I saw on cnn.com that Blackbeard's anchor had been dredged up from the sea, I shared it with Mickey immediately. Then of course we googled Blackbeard to read more about this interesting pirate. On a side note--how did parents answer questions before Google?
I was reading aloud the article and Mickey interrupted me with this startling question:
Mickey: BLACKBEARD WAS A CHRISTIAN?
I looked at Mickey incredulously wondering how he could have possibly wondered that after hearing about the not-so-Christ-like activities of Mr. Blackbeard.
When Mickey saw my confused expression he said....
"Well you just said that Blackbeard easily preyed (PRAYED) on Merchant Ships...."
I have been giggling about this ever since!
