So you just went for a swim at the community pull where you could have sworn you saw a mermaid.
No, you don’t have a case of the mad-fin flu. The truth is, you just might start seeing more and more mermaids in pools now that the company Mermagica manufactures beautiful custom mermaid tails. The tails come in a variety of colors and are made in child and adult sizes (although you might feel like you’ve just swallowed a shark whole when you see the prices).
If I thought for one minute that that I could actually maneuver such a magnificent appendage, I might slip into a tail of my own. But I have no desire to die a watery death and I doubt anyone wants to see a mermaid with muffin top. Needless to say, my adventures in the mystical, magical mermaid world will stay firmly planted in books and movies.
