I know this is going to sound ridiculous, but I swear that the last time I went out on my boat, I saw a mermaid. It might have had something to do with the fact that I hadn’t eaten in a couple of days and I was dehydrated and hungover and I had dropped my glasses overboard at the time, but I’m still pretty sure that’s what I saw.
My friends have pointed out to me all of the reasons why I probably didn’t see what I thought I saw, but I’m an optimist and I’m a believer. I’ve decided that I’m going to see if I can find the mermaid again under similar circumstances in the same place. I’m going to load my boat up with Mercury oil and make sure everything’s all set before I go out and try to find her again.
