There once was a lovely
Princess mermaid who lived under the sea. She used to dream many dreams
of living on land and falling in love with a two-legged man; But her
dreams were often shot down by her father, the King.
The Princess often
swam along boats in hopes to attract a human and finally, one day, her
mesmerizing beauty caught a young man’s eye. He said he was a Prince
and yelled a promise to return for her in two days; and in two days, HE
Princess was delighted and requested a kiss. As they both leaned
in to kiss, the young man jerked back repulsed, turned his boat
back, and returned to land…
Long story short, mermaids are still fish.
