I'M FEELING FONDERFUL & WANTASTIC IN SHIPSHAPE CONDITION.

From the 11th diary entry of Stewy Lemmon's childhood adventures.

 

 

Smoochy, my dad Archie and I, all went sailing yesterday morning, in the very large blue ocean. We went on dad's small, banana-shaped, sailingboat, which took about two hours to get there by car, from my family’s home. Which, is nestled amongst the trees on a hill, in a little country village called, Shimmerleedimmerlee.

 

It was my second time out in dads small, banana-shaped, sailingboat. But, it was Smoochy's first time in a boat on water. Although, he is famous around town, for being the first mouse, that has been out to sea, on the back of a whale.

 

My Dad, was trying to teach me how to steer the boat, tie up the ropes, weigh anchor and all sorts of other boatie, thingy-me-jiggy things, that you should learn. That’s if, you ever want to sail a boat by yourself, especially when you are older, like I will hopefully do one day.

 

We were learning a lot and enjoying the morning together, until my dad, moved the sail, riggy-diggy-thingy. You know, the thing that helps all sailboats stay on course and turn when they want. ‘You know what I mean, don't you’?

 

But, silly old me didn't move out of the way in time. Whack, went the riggy-diggy-thingy, wooden beam thing, straight into my head and then thump, I fallen down backwards, which caused a bump on the back of my head, that was clearly the size of a bumpity-bump, speed hump.

 

Then, dad’s, small, banana-shaped, sailingboat, started sailing towards a colourful pirate ship, that had an unusual Jolly Roger, an old pirate's flag on top of its mast. It looked like a picture of a family of yellow tailed bears under a tree, in a mountain range with a hot air balloon stuck high above. The name of the ship, which was spelt out across its bow was, Shift-N-About.

 

When, we were beside the pirate ship, we climbed up Jacob's ladder, onto the ship. Then, some funny looking crew members, named, Anastasia and Houllio, welcomed me aboard and said, ‘Ahoy, me Hearty’! I looked in disbelief and said back to them both, ‘ Hello, my friends, haven't I seen you perform somewhere before’?

 

Then, Johnny whose nickname was, ‘Hamanail’, the ships very own handyman, and his apprentice named, Little Cutsaw Stevie, threw me into the corner and tied me down tight with some, really awful, fish smelling, rope.

 

Smoochy, The Short, who wore a yellow feather tail in his hat, was the ships lookout officer. With his trusty homemade, fancy, far out, funny binoculars, he would look out for trouble, while nestled, high up above, in the ships crow’s nest. Which, by the way, looked very much like my dad’s, unusually built and outrageously painted, backyard, outback shed.

 

The pirate ship also had its own mascot and his name was, Bucko the Duckaneer. Who, always sat in the top left-hand side pockets, of the Captain's identical, twin, lassie daughters, Lena and Mena, at different times of the day.

 

Then, a boat was seen approaching at super duper fast speed and with the waves his boat was making, tossed the homemade pirate ship Shiftnabout, Slip Slop and Slapping all about, just like inside a waterlogged washing machine full of sea fish.

 

The Captain Triple T said, ‘Fire a shot, across the bow of that super fast boat. Savvy, which he yelled out to him. It actually, really means, ‘Do you understand the warning and do you agree with me’?

 

But the super fast boats captain, Stefan Pettersson of North Noland, who was just cruising past, laughed and shook his head again. He then took off, in his super, fast boat named, Snowski. See! ‘You are just another Scallywag, who tried to scuttle my ship.

 

Is everything shipshape in the galley, ye cook down below? Then, up popped a head and said, ‘Yay, everything is Spik n Span in the kitchen of mine’. All cleaned up and under control, Flo the Cook was yelling, while handling the very hot bread dough.

 

Smoochy the Short screamed out, ‘Thar she blows’. Smoochy the Short, the ships lookout officer had spotted a very large fish. Blimey! He said, ‘It’s  not a large fish, it's a very familiar whale and it's headed our way.

 

Captain Billy Stilrite hollered, ‘Shiver-Me-Timber and Blow-Me-Down’. 

Then, the whale deliberately, slammed into his pirate ship. It was, his pride and joy, even it was cheaply made from wooden ply.

 

Holy Crap! Aaaarrrrgggghhhh! He yelled in disgust. The whale had managed to rip a large hole in the ship, and out fell the pirate’s treasure into the swell. Down and down it went, with all the pirate’s mouths wide open and dropping to the floor. But, not a word came out, like you would’ve expected. They, should’ve of at-least, managed a groan or a yell.

 

Then, another pirate ship named, Shining-No-More, had come to steal gold coins and so much more, from the pirate ship we were aboard, named,

Shift-N-About. But, the large hole that the whale had made, was filling up with water and beginning to sink.

 

Yo Ho Ho! screamed, Captain Triple T, to me, ‘Walk the plank now and never be seen on my pirate ship again’. He said, ‘That I had made all of this happen’. But, I said, ‘It wasn't my fault, for I was knocked out cold and only napping’.

Then, all of the crew started clapping, once I was upon the plank and taking very small steps at a time.

 

The crew aboard the Shining Amor, felt sorry for the other ships crew and started to help them all aboard. They were helped by people with funny names, such as, Admiral Monty Lopez from the Spanish Armada, ‘One would think’!Then, others like Lemmy Rolling-River and even the ship’s butler named, Albert Will-That-B-All, the eighth of course.

 

They, were about to rescue me, but I slipped and fell, head first and took a great dive. Then, I thought while down under here, I might as well start searching, for the sunken treasure.

 

On my way down, I saw all sorts of things, like a small fish, that didn't smell so nice and even an old rusty knight in shining armor. I even saw a dog with a great big Danish flag around its neck. Also, I saw a yellow duck, an orange Tabby cat and even a guinea pig, swimming on by.

 

I then saw, the chest full of treasure and made my way towards my find. But when I looked closer, it wasn't treasure at all. It was a glass of my favourite Fruit-Blast, that my mum, had left out for me. She, had made it especially for me, so when I woke up, my head wouldn’t feel sore anymore.

 

For after my great fall, my dad, had sailed back to shore. Then, he carried me into the back of the family’s car and drove me home to bed.

 

When i awoke, my Mum came in to ask, ’How I felt’. I told her, ‘I’m feeling Fonderful & Wantastic in shipshape condition, I think!

 

For none of my fun pirate adventures were even real. For, I was unconscious and it was just an adventurous dream, a very colourful and funny one indeed, it would seem.
