A friend of mine has a three year old who is currently obsessed with pirates.
Recently they were out at a café and her daughter started talking in a pirate accent. My friend chimes in, both of them both heartily chatting away in Pirate.
And if you’re familiar with talking in Pirate you’ll understand that volume is necessary to perfect the accent.
A few minutes into this banter her daughter wanted to go to the loo, so off they trot.
It was on their way back that my friend was mortified to discover her daughter’s inspiration for talking in Pirate.
There was a man sitting at the table behind them wearing an eye patch.
