*Mal de mer: (french) seasickness
Captain Pierre is what I always dreamed of being called. An adventurer of the high seas, explorer of unknown lands. Alas poor me, when I first set foot on a ship and took off for my first sea voyage I was arrested by the mal de mer.
Ah mal de mer, I had never thought of it or considered that I would be one afflicted by it. All of my lifelong dreams wasted, gone by such a simple means.
