I didn’t know that I wanted a skeleton mermaid costume until now.

I’m going to go have some sort of chocolate to celebrate. Also, hoping to think of a million other genius ideas. No pressure. Just chocolate and celebrating and brainstorming.

Summertime is Mermaid Time: #Blogtember

Tell us about your favorite season. Why is it your favorite and what does it say about you?

Summer
Summer is my favorite season by far. This means that I’m always cold and the only time that I’m comfortable is when it’s too freakin’ hot for everyone else. It also means that I should be a mermaid
Summer is also the only time that it’s possible can pretend to be a mermaid outside. For the rest of the year, it’s mermaid bathtub time, mermaid ice fishing or be a mermaid in the pumpkin patch. It’s not the same.
This summer I didn’t devote as much time to trying to become a mermaid. Next summer, it will be mermaid clothes (or lack of) for as long as possible.

Most Embarrassing Moment: Blogtober 14

Most embarrassing moment. ….

It’s really hard to top puking 50 feet from the finish line in front of a few thousand people.

I wrote about it last year. So far I have progressed to taking pictures of races. I haven’t quite gotten back into the race yet.

There was also the time went swimming at a hotel pool. My friends and I  did not know that there were windows in the pool. On the other side of the pool was a bar, the Mermaid Lounge. So our bodies were on display for about an hour. We had no idea until we were finished swimming. Some dude noticed us while we were standing in the hall. I guess he recognized us from swimming in the Mermaid Lounge. Luckily, we had good bodies back then so there wasn’t any reason for us to be embarrassed. However, I think I did readjust my suit while in the pool, which is a little bit embarrassing. It hasn’t stopped me from swimming.

Childhood: Why can’t I be a Mermaid?

Childhood: Not a Mermaid

Sure, you turned out pretty good, but is there anything you
wish had been different about your childhood?

My childhood was fine, except that I was not a mermaid. I am not an outdoorsy person but I have always loved swimming. If I could have been a mermaid, that would have been wonderful. I could live with being a mermaid, even if it was part-time.
It would have been nice to have gone to a school with a swim team. I think I could have lettered in swimming. When I was in high school, I lettered in academics. At the time, I never thought about joining a swim team at the YMCA.
So I never competed. I do not have an Olympic gold medal. I do enjoy watching the swimming events almost as much as ice skating. I never wanted to be an ice skater. It’s too cold and there’s no beach.
My kids are all good swimmers. Maybe we can start a swim team. We could be the Mermaids. The Mermaid team sounds like a force to be reckoned with to me. 🙂
