of course it was the pirates

out to dinner with the parents (divorced c. 1986ish) tonight. transcript of conversation between dad and mom, discussing travels of days gone by:

m: we almost went to zihuatanejo, remember?
d: yeah, we went to europe though instead
m: well we weren't going to go to europe, remember, we were going to go to mexico? and you couldn't get us a hotel reservation so we had to go to europe?
d: no we didn't go to mexico because we couldn't get a hotel reservation. we didn't go to mexico because you were scared of pirates.
<5 minutes of discussion about the reasons to forgoing mexico in favour of europe>
m: maybe you're right. maybe it was the pirates.
