Have you joined my incredibly non-annoying, once-in-a-while email newsletter?
You know, there are days for everything. Just look them up – I’ve requested days for clients, anyone can, really.
But the one that for whatever reason, always seems to resonate the most online, is today, National Talk Like a Pirate Day.
So, from the official website, I offer you the top 29 things to say at the office during National Talk Like a Pirate Day. More information can also be found by watching this video.
I personally love #’s 11 and 13.
