Captain Tim is a sailorman who sails yachts....
perhaps a bit like Popeye the sailroman i like to think.

Over dinner last night he told me of an 'event' that had taken place on the boat that day.

Apparently whilst hoisting the rig
(i'm not sure thats the right term but doesnt it sound sailorish?)

any hows,
whilst pulling a rope it snapped and it whipped out and the chunk of metal on the end
hit one if his fellow sailors on the head.

Without thinking Captain Ti went over to this fellow sailor who he had only been introduced to a few hours prior, and kissed his head where he had been hit.

There was a moment of awkward silence on the boat whilst all these manly men took in what had just happened.

Captain Tim was mortified, but after a second, a sub-concious mutual decision was made by all, to pretend like it had never happened.

Seemingly this awkward moment is my fault
as whenever i hurt myself i get him to 'kiss-it-better'

Personally i just think i've got him well trained...
