The world according to ME.

Sitting on my lounge the other day, I was combing the knots out of my ridiculously long, wet, hair.
"How on earth do Mermaids comb their long hair?" I asked no one in particular..
Hubby, chuckling: "Um..they don't because they are mythical creatures" 
Me: "Still.... They have to comb it sometime..."
Hubby: "no, they don't, because they aren't real"
Me: "....even so, it's got to be a pain for them.."
Hubby: "THEY AREN'T REAL!!"
Me: "YES THEY ARE CAUSE I'M GOING TO BE ONE WHEN I GROW UP SO THERE!"


perfectly reasonable if you ask me.

  2. even mythical creatures have to practice personal hygiene.
    Perhaps they use a special seaweed conditioner to make combing easier?

  3. You know that foamy stuff that washes up on seashores? Shampoo residue.

  4. That is a very good question.... living in that salt water must be murder on their hair, although if they're half fish they are bound to be loaded with fish oil which I would assume is how their hair never gets knotty in the first place? Hmm...

  5. Mermaids combing hair aside, I often wonder how they go to the bathroom. The foamy stuff that washes up on shores may not be shampoo residue...could be something else. Urine foams up too you know!

  7. I can easily solve this scientific mystery for you.
    They get their hair combed by the Comb shrimp.

  11. Just be a mermaid. That's MUCH more interesting than HOUSE FRAU.

    But it's true--you don't have to comb your hair if you're one, because you're too busy being FABULOUS.

  14. LOL--Awwwww, that's so cute! You know, there were an awful lot of reports of mermaids back in the day...who's to say they don't exist? ;) Plus, we only know around 10-15% of all ocean life, who knows what's out there? :)
