I forgot to mention one of the most important events at the fair! Before I begin, I would like to mention that I’m one of those people that is totally mesmerized by the crazy carni people at the fair. You know, the crazy sounding clown thing that instigates you to throw a baseball at him so he falls into freezing cold water, the smallest horse, the half werewolf half girl, etc….In the last few years I have made it a point to make sure I see at least one of these oddities. What else are you going to do when you don’t like to ride the gravitron and so on?
This year, we passed by a very peculiar stand that said it had the “strangest thing you’ve ever seen!” For $1 I can see the strangest thing ever? Are you kidding? I was in line faster than you could say eeewwwww. Matt, not so much.
Ok, so want to know what I saw?
Are you sure?
Don’t go any further if you plan on going to the fair and don’t want me to ruin it for you.
I saw a……
Scary mermaid baby monster thing. Yep. I didn’t look quite the same as this one, but very similar. It had a full set of scary monster teeth, scary long fingernail claws, long weird scraggly hair, and a little curled up mermaid tail. The horror!! This is the stuff that nightmares are made of:
Weird. Even weirder, is that I believed it! They told me it got washed up in the tsunami and I was like, “yeah, that makes sense.” Huh.
For the record Matt debunked this one for me tonight.
Never fret- you won’t have to worry about seeing this crazy baby mermaid thing at Clearwater Beach. But you already knew that didn’t you? (I know, I know, I’m SO gullible!!)
