No Need To Write It Down

       Pirate John Grave watched his ship sink from the shoreline. His crew escaped, but much of the wealth he plundered sunk to the bottom of the sea. His heart sank along with it. His crew felt the same. They knew that in their lifeboats they could get to the mainland from the island they were on, so they didn't feel completely dead. Only dead on the inside.
     “Captain,” The first mate always said the John Grave's title before addressing him, “What if we wrote down the location of the ship so that it could be found later?”

      Grave then replied, “That's crazy. It's underwater. Do you think that someday we'll have some magic way to dive underwater for hours like fish and then pull things from the bottom of the sea?”
