Talking Dictionary364. Survivor Is 500 Years Old

She started asking questions. "How'd you get here? How long have you been here?" Pablo said he'd jumped ship when he saw this island. He was tired of being at sea. He was tired of listening to his crewmates. He was especially tired of Ferdinand. "Ferdinand who?" she asked. "Ferdinand Magellan," said Pablo. "He is such a crazy man." She was astounded.
