1Zumba, I’m a Hooker Too!

My dear 1Zumba friends, thank you for reading our words, and taking the time to send emails, and comments, especially our friends from the US, Germany, Denmark, & Romania 😉

We had a great Halloween Party at Berkshire Hathaway Drysdale and enjoyed all the fun in the world together- Image result for the first female pirate- Mary Readmy colleagues and I.

In the meantime, my disguise was a female pirate, after starting going through Mary Read’s memoirs, it kind of has its influence on my decision when I chose that costume. Haha! 

Many people are concerned about who will be the president of the US, and of course it is a very critical matter; but people are unhappy in advance.

They expect the worse to happen, and the battle will be settled soon, but still everyone is on fire to knoooooow. 🙄

As a continuation for our “Mary Read, 1Z” topic, “The Jolly Roger” was displayed to intimidate nearby ships to surrender. Pirates had a preference for traveling in different styles of ships. The most popular was the Galleon.

Often portrayed in movies, the Galleon was a large sailImage result for galleoning ship with many decks used by the Europeans from the 16th to 18th centuries.

Pirates made good use of the space on this sturdy, durable vessel. A Junk ship was designed with a flat bottom and bow. Many pirates liked Junk ships because they were easy to maneuver.

Any man who became a pirate was considered an outlaw. If a pirate was caught by an official he was hanged or put into prison, where he faced a death sentence.

Captain William Kidd was put on trial for piracy, Image result for the first female pirate- Mary Readfound guilty, and executed in 1701. 

By the 19th century the Golden Age of piracy was over. Although, there were still some pirates around, the majority of them had vanished. Pirates exist in the world today. The most recent account was in 1996 when they attached a fishing boat crew in the area of the Philippines Islands. 

Our Question no. 98 is as follows:

Well! Time for a break? Sure, I think so. We’ll talk some more after this short break, guys.

Oh! Before we 1z-im-hookrtemporarily be away from you, someone asked me about “being a hooker” in slang or informal expressions, which is very funny, but I’ll explain it here.

A good example, I think, is when someone offers you some kind of risky business, and she is trying to push you into it, promising gaining from it. You may answer: “Ok, I guess I’m a hooker too”. 

So it’s a kind of saying: “OK, I will take the risk, if you’re taking it. I’m not less than you in taking such a risk, to get some profit”.  Hopefully, this would be helpful, 1Zumba friend 😕

Hugs & kisses to all of you ❤
