Puss-n-Boots II: Electric Boogaloo

Citizen Smash fulfilled the fantasy of many. He had a chance to get a face to face with that shipwreck Pablo Paredes.

He asked the perfect question.
Other than a handful of his anti-war buddies, nobody was paying him much attention. He stepped away from the gaggle for a moment, and pulled out his cell phone.

It was an irresistible opportunity. Before he could dial, I stepped in front of him. “Hey, are you Pablo?”

He put away his cell phone and flashed me a half-grin. “Yeah.”
“Mind if I ask you a question?”

I looked him right in the eye. “Do you know the name of the sailor who replaced you on Bonhomme Richard?"
