Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum. Well, actually it’s a cup of tea I have at the moment, but yo ho ho anyway.
I remembered something this morning that I hadn’t thought about in so many years. When I was 16, I was ‘in town’ with some of my friends and we kind of met up with another group of girls we didn’t know so well and stood talking with them. One of them, Joanne, a rough-looking sort with muscles on her muscles asked me to go into Boots with her. I said ‘okay’ and followed her in. She went to the make-up counter, pointed at a lipstick and said to me ‘Put that one in your pocket’.
I said ‘Er, no. If you want it, put it in your own pocket’ and walked out the shop.
The thing is, I didn’t realise until this morning that she was trying to intimidate me into stealing the lipstick. It really struck me as funny… and then I realised. You can’t be bullied or intimidated easily when you know who you are.
If someone had said ‘Do you think you can take her in a fight?’ I’d probably have said no. Indeed, fighting was not something I liked to do. So I think most battles happen in the mind.
Know your own mind, be comfortable in your own skin and don’t be swayed by anybody else when you feel in your bones you’re right. You probably are.
Pirate Meri also says tomorrow is polling day here in the UK. I’m not going to tell you what to do – after all, you know your own mind, but please do think about voting for the good of the many, rather than the privileged few.
