Mermaids Are Real

Happy Wednesday everyone! A lot of strange things exist on the Internet, and I have seen something a little odd these past two days. Since yesterday afternoon, I have seen two articles about people who impersonate mermaids. Totally casual.

I saw the first article about real-life mermaids yesterday on Yahoo.com. A woman named Linden Wolbert works as a mermaid at various parties and charity events, and can even hold her breath for up to 5 minutes (she used to be a freediver). While “mermaiding” as a job might seem justifiable, Eric Ducharme dons a mermaid tale for fun.

Wolbert in action.

I saw the article about Ducharme this afternoon, and after seeing my second mermaid article in two days, I thought this was too strange to ignore. Ducharme can also hold his breath for minutes at a time, but he “mermaids” for fun. When I was younger, I used to lay on my bedroom floor with a pillowcase around my legs and pretend that I had a mermaid tail, so I’m not gonna say that I wouldn’t want to swim around with a sparkly tail on in my spare time…

Have a wonderful rest of the week and thanks for reading :)
