He said that about ten years earlier, he was getting ready to head to the fishing grounds, planning on leaving early in the morning, well he says he got up, walked into the galley and the old woman was sitting at the table drinking tea, he told her she had to leave, and she answered, "don't sass me sonny, I'm the captain's girlfriend!"
He said "oh really!?" Show me which stateroom this captain sleeps in."
She pointed to the room where his greenhorn a 19 year old slept he banged on the door and went in, he found his greenhorn packing his seabag, the captain told him he wasn't fired, just get her off the boat so they could sail. After they cleared the locks the kid came to the wheelhouse to thank the captain for not firing him, the captain said, "don't thank me yet, this trip will 5-7 months, and you ain't livin' this down!"
Remember what happened last night? Good. Now tell the world.
