Flipper Fights the Turks

The others told me I have to post on Mondays; I didn’t, because I was writing a historical narrative instead.  Apologies.

The narrative was about the siege and fall of Constantinople in 1453 — which was, uh, EPIC — but I don’t have much to report about it, except that there was this Venetian dude, who commanded some ships, but whatever — point is, his name was Dolfin Dolfin.

I would like to monogram his towels please.

P.S.  No works cited this time, folks.  I’M DONE.  Just trust me — it’s true.

    “…the fourth and last gate, that of the palace of the Most Serene Emperor, was given to Dolfin Dolfin, and these nobles had the keys of these four gates and kept them well guarded.”

    Bitch, way to one-up me.

    There goes all my historian street cred.

    Yeah, well, you deserved it. You didn’t post on Monday.
