Sam: I’m shimmering in my timbers.
Me: Where did you hear that?
Sam: It is what that pirate says. You know the little bald people.
Me: I think he might have said – Shiver me timbers.
Sam: It could have been that but I am pretty sure he said – I’m shimmering in my timbers.
Katie: Shimmer means shiny or sparkly and timber means trees or wood.
Me: And shivering is shaking because you are cold or scared.
Sam: I like shiny sparkly trees.
