          Oooh I hope it comes out here! I love pirates, like more than the average person. Not sure if in a former life I was a pirate or in love with one or something but they fascinate me LOL

            OMG!!!! This is awesome, Alyssa. Thanks for sharing. Totally going to do this. We took Aiden to the Franklin Institute a few months ago for the Star Wars Exhibit (that was alllllll Brian). But this is so much cooler.

                    no in real life.. ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHH

                    I was a real pirate of the Caribbean. Greg & I went on a cruise a few years ago with some friends to the Caribbean. One of our stops was St. Thomas. His friend lives on St. John so he picked us up and took us out on this lil boat. He told us that he wanted to take us to this little beautiful island called Jost Van Dyke in the British Virgin Islands. The only problem is, with it being in the BVI, we'd need our passports which none of us had on us. He's like,"Ahh Customs never comes around but if they do, let me handle it." I felt jinxed lol We made it to Jost Van Dyke which is literally paradise on earth.. It was hot, we started drinking heavily at 8:30am lol By the time we left it was SCORCHING hot and all we had was Jager. I chugged it.. (you know where my night ended..praying to the gods). Anyways.. as we're sailing back to St. John..WASTED OFF OUR ASSSSES.. we decided the water was too nice not to jump in. Not even 5 minutes later, Customs comes! They tied their boat to ours and took Greg's friend onto their boat and even handcuffed him. They questioned him for like 20 minutes. I actually have all of this on video which I tucked behind my butt..I needed to show the people back at home LOL I was so drunk I didn't take it as serious as I should have. We all nearly got arrested.. IMAGINE?! OMG. They shook us down for cash.. $300 was all we were able to come up with. They gave my FI a scroll saying he was now the captain of the vessel since he was (in their eyes) the least wasted one of all of us lmao and they let us go.

                    Here's my FI driving away from Customs.
