Captain Chloe, Argh!

Okay, so the title isn't the best, but I couldn't come up with anything else! It's supposed to be a pirate reference....you'll see. Yesterday Chloe and I were talking about her Uncle Brian and Aunt Kristina, they are going to be here in 2 days! They have been living in China since July (my SIL is teaching at an American school there, and my brother is an assistant) and they are coming home for Christmas. We are very excited, and Chloe has been counting down the days. So, anyway, back to my story. We were talking about when they would be here, and she said "Yeah, they are probably in the car right now driving to get here!" My parents drive up from Georgia all the time so that's why she said this. I explained to her that China is very far away, it's across the ocean so they have to fly here. They can't drive. When she heard me say the ocean she got very excited and said "I love the ocean! I wish I were a pirate so I could sail the seas and be near the ocean all the time!" And just to clarify, she meant the feather-in-your-hat, parrot-on-your-shoulder, "argh!"-saying pirate. Not the pirates that are wreaking havoc in the waters off the coast of Africa. But, I'm sure you knew that.
