If you meet a sailor and you are not on a boat, chances are that he is drunk. What? How do I know he is a he? Because lady sailors are called “sailorettes” and everyone knows that. Please stop interrupting.
Do not attempt to shave his belly with a rusty razor. This is so beyond dumb and very freaking dangerous to both you and the sailor. You would be surprised how often this course of action is attempted. Do you always do everything you are told to do? You can answer.
You can ignore him if you choose. That is a thing you can definitely do. If you chose to approach him you can offer a greeting. “Hi” or “Hello” are useful and not inappropriate.
After initiating contact with the sailor you may explore Downtown New York with him, singing if you choose. You may become drunk with him and most importantly you must go to a cut rate tattoo parlor and get a tattoo. Snakes, anchors and hearts with daggers are within the realm of reason.
Again. No razors. Rusty or not, no matter what time of day it is. Use your head.
