Mermaids… Oh my!

July 17, 2013 Marianne's Thoughts 5

Hey guys! So this is just a short post which I am going to use to fangirl over one of my favorite mythical creatures: Mermaids.

I LOVE The Little Mermaid (the movie, and the Hans Christian Anderson short story), and ever since I was a little girl I wanted to be a mermaid.

Imagine my surprise, when one day, I stumble across this video:

The girl in the video’s name is Melissa and she’s a professional mermaid… You’re telling me you can get PAID to be a mermaid? OHMYGOD! This is incredibly awesome! This girl can hold her breath for a really long time (about 4 minutes) and she constantly changes up her tail colors. PLUS she does this to create awareness on all the wonderful sea creatures, especially the Manatees. She has this website called Mermaid Melissa, visit it to see more AWESOME pictures and videos.

I seriously LOVE mermaids.

What do you think? Let me know in the comments! 🙂

  • Yep, now my 5 year old KNOWS what she’s gonna be when she grows up 😉

    • I wish I’d known about this sooner! I’d have chosen another major to specialize in ;D

  • CLEARLY I love merfolk since I wrote two novels about them. I had the privilege of receiving video footage from Hannah the Mermaid for my TANGLED TIDES book trailer. Just in case you’d like to see more mermaid prettiness–she swims with seals! 🙂 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Awlq_lHfm-o

    • That’s awesome! Thanks for the video, Karen. I have to move your books up in my to-read list. 🙂
