(She doesn't know it's June.)
(It's OK, I love her even though she is not too bright.)
I love that.
Forgive me for what I said about you being a dummy.
[Here's what DaMasta said back then: The humpty egg is actually kinda cute. But the snorkelers/mermaid men have. to. go. There's no need for that in a world like this. I guess she has changed her tune!]
Wait, you know I hate TBDOA*, right?!?!?!?
Oh, the humanity!
The only thing I loathe more than TBDOA is mer-creatures. They are so scaly, so strangely human. How do they procreate? Do they have a pouch like seahorses? How do they go poopy? What's with the shell-titties? All of these questions plague me.
Yet ... I can see what DaMasta is trying to do here. By making me look my fear straight in the eye, she is forcing me to grow and to become a better person. A tolerant person. A lover of all things vomitously adorable. Only she would encourage me to stretch my comfort zone in this manner.
In fact ... I have come to love the mer-bear.
I just hope I don't put it in my mouth:
for showing me that I can look
beyond my prejudice
and find a wealth of compassion.
There is room in this world,
in this heart,
Even for the freaks.
Thank you for teaching me that.
