How I Was Made
While boat shopping in the Grand Bazaar for new types of wooden hulls, I came across a wood dealer who had a glass eye and a silver tongue. We talked for hours about travel and food and he invited me over to dine with him and his wife. As the wine flowed we prepared dinner and he I started to help with the food prep when I noticed he was out of countertop space for chopping and slicing.
Being the resourceful sailor that I am, I pulled an extra piece of sapele I was using at the Bazaar to show what I wood I was looking for, and laid it on the table. As the staccato of chops rang in the air we ate until there was no more food and laughed until there was no more light in the evening. Needless to say I let him keep the carving board and he still orders more from me for his friends and family.
