Look At This Stuff, Isn’t it Neat?

9 Jun

So we’re going to the beach in August. This is what happens when Mazall plans the vacation:

Mazall: OMG can we play mermaids when we go to the ocean!?!?!?!?!

Claire: how do we play mermaids?

Mazall: OMG claire
you’ve never played mermaids???
Claire: i played “swimming” ?
Mazall: nope
A. you have to have a mermaid name
B. you have to pick the color of your “tail” and hair sometimes if you want
Claire: mine will be “Beth”
Mazall: nope
lame mermaid name
Claire: Beth the mermaid!
Mazall: C. you MUST and i mean MUST swim with your legs closed together to mimic a “tail”
Claire: Beth the bald mermaid with a purple tail?
Mazall: D. then you dive for “pearls” while singing “part of your world” in your head
oh my god it’s the best!
Claire: and then what happens? do you find pearls and get rich and rule a mermaid kingdom?

Mazall: yup. anything you want
my merdad always made me stay home
so i would sneak out a lot
and then get in trouble
then my sister would rescue me
abusive relationships even as a young kid
Claire: Beth the bald mermaid has cancer and listens to Nickleback
Mazall: OH and then when we got old enough we had merboyfriends
which was great
flirting with no one under water
while plugging my nose so water didn’t get up it
Claire: Beth’s boyfriend is named Trevor

    pearl and april were frequently coming up in my games with my sister. a little unoriginal, however.

      I don’t know why I’m admitting this…but Maz…my sister and I played this in the pool growing up. We made an underwater mer-house and laughed at people with legs.
