HEM’S GHOST

The trusty bottle of Captain Morgan’s rum cost $7.85, and it was as good as I remembered it. From the first time I ever drank rum , twelve long years ago, until now I see it as a jovial drink, never a drink for the down and out. Rum brought to mind pirates and my love for Jimmy Buffett songs, I had heard how it was medicine to the pirates in days of old, curing scurvy and now it was going to be my medicine once again.
