    Lost razor overboard. May be a while ’til we find a new one. Might grow out my facial hair, but worried I’ll be known as “that beardy dude.”

    The men have taken to calling me “Baby Face.” Growing out beard to avoid any more stupid nicknames.

    Pitched new flag design to first mate Roger who won’t stop laughing at me. Thinking of calling the flag “LOL Roger” to spite him.
