I know, I seem to be stuck on mermaids lately. But yesterday I left work early (!) to head to a meeting (non-day-job-related!).
On the trek to the interstate I was pacing a truck. This was not unusual in itself, but I kept catching something in my peripheral vision when we’d pass by each other. As we slowed to a stop I leaned forward to look at the side of the trailer – Baitmaster. Ok. I like fishing but I’ll use whatever my bro-in-law brings along. He’s the one with the boat; I have no need to buy bait.
But just below the text there she was, perched on a hook with her green scales pulled modestly up around her bosoms.
Blonde hair and typical mermaid profile just like the one in my dreams, but ten times as big and not on ice.
I think she’s haunting me.
