As annoying as I know some people will find the headline, I can’t help it sometimes and it does have a certain ring to it.
Some of the mannerisms and interactions of my twins started sparking ideas about pirates fighting over a golden submarine (the twins shrieking at each other over the one plastic yellow submarine bath toy we have – yes, we should have bought two but didn’t). Naturally the two pirates are related, though probably not twins. They’ll love each other but fight tooth and nail for the right to have what the other is holding.
If it’s a comedy (or comedic – not sure yet) they will of course have their unconventional pets (a sheep and a lion – stuffed in reality, naturally).
Maybe I won’t write any story along this lines. I do like the ideas swirling around in my head though. It’s certainly amusing.
