It is so happened that
we are trapped in trap, made by ourselves. An old
saying says, all the troubles are baked in one's even.
I had promised my little daughter, to take her to a
movie on weekend. To be exact I had promised it, four
days before it. But you know that a clerk has many
obligations to be fulfilled. It was already dark that
to remembered my promise. Because, I was a methodical
sort of man getting up and going out to compensate.
I bought videotape of the same movie. It is not the
usual spending for a simple down level clerk. It is
more stupidity. My daughter watched the tape for a
week long. At the end, she had discovered the
mysterious content like Archimedes and she said with
shining eyes, "Dad, you are like the captain of
My wife laughed, "If only he was lame and
My daughter said seriously, "Oh! Mom, I mean his
beard big around belly. Uneven eyebrows and thick
lips. Like Long John Silver!"
My wife raise an eyebrow and she said, "Really,
do you think so?"
"Only a little make up will do. Say!"
An hour later, I became captain of the pirates. A mock
one. I folded my left foot and bound it. A pump sticks
to my knee. I covered my right eye with a black cloth.
I wore my wife's pit black raincoat. A derby hat of my
father crowned my head. A symbol of bones and skull on
it. The buttons were covered by golden florescent
They were excited by my new appearance so much; they
danced like cannibals around me. My daughter was very
pleased and she pleaded me to sleep with the same
costume in the bed. Since I am to please the children,
An ancient proverb says, "End of destruction is
at the beginning." In the morning at twilight, I
woke up by rocking. My daughter was shaking me.
"Get up, you sleepy captain. It is the time. Get
I rubbed my eye under the black cover. I yawned and I
asked her, what was the fuss!
She asked me, what fuss. I told her, "This mumbo
Jumbo!" My daughter said crying, "Captain,
oh captain, the morning sea is the best one to be
Down below in the street, I acted according to my
we robbed the four-wheeled ships in the neighborhood.
The first misfortune stroked ship was a yellow Dastun
car. Up on turning to our street, I jumped on the
hood, like a painted devil. My daughter knocked at the
pane. The driver was shocked and asked, what do you
want? My daughter said politely, "We are pirates.
If you like your life, you should pay ransom."
I told her that ransom is not a suitable and polite
word, assistance is a better word. The sleepy man
reached the compartment and gave a handful of coins to
My happy daughter pocketed the change and she signaled
me to clear the way. The first success was hopeful.
I got leave without payment.
Coins were charming. Our home was a little treasure
full of coins. Every corner was full of piles of
coins. In the washroom, bathroom and kitchen. In my
daughter's bedroom, the coins reached the ceiling. The
coins buried everything, even our under wears. I was
My wife was used to say, we are making love on a bed
of coins. It is good for the future of the children.
But, this was just one side of coins. There were
disasters as well.
Sometimes calling names, beating and misunderstandings
bothered me. Once, I blocked the way of a 206 Peugeut
ship, captain of the ship opened the window and
attacked me by tomatoes. Then, he cried, "Fool!
Fool! Fool! He is sinking."
I told my daughter, "Look, the time is over with
My daughter told me, "Dad, the coins at home are
not agreed with you. The captain was crazy. The crazy
fools have nothing to do with the era."
Her answers were convincing, but I was annoyed.
My wife has nothing to do, but coming the coins. Now,
even the coins were in our food.
I was thinking that, by passing the coins, I could
Now, the coins buried everything. I don't blame them,
but I mean to show their engulfing and digesting
power. I open the mouth, coin, coin, coin, coin. Means
abrupt strike. Coin means abrupt strike. Looking at
the pile of coins makes the notion.
I don't know, it was very fast. Leave without payment
finished so soon.
After one year, I decided to return to my job. All
ends in good ends.
I was very lucky, not to come across British Royal
I told my daughter, "I should go to office from
tomorrow on. It was a nice game."
My daughter scratched her head and said, "So soon
Dad! I have bought a hugged equipped vessel, to follow
up our job in Far East seas. Do you want to leave me
You know that I act upon my genes.
