While mermaids may not exist (LIES! THEY DO EXIST! ARIEL IS REAL!), we can still pretend to be mermaids!
But dolphin kicking your way across the pool is now considered child’s play if you don’t have your very own mermaid tail. Just in case you have an extra $250 (US) in your bank account, Etsy seller Monika Naumann is selling mermaid tails equipped with fins for optimal swimming abilities.
Things to think about here:
1. Where was this when I was a kid? It was a dream of mine to become a mermaid, but then reality kicked in and crushed it.
2. Are these Olympic approved? I think Michael Phelps would look dapper in one as he butterfly strokes his way to another gold medal.
3. Is it hard to take the tail off? A quick strip-down is important when you have to pee. (Please don’t tell me you pee in the pool. I don’t care if there’s chlorine, it’s doesn’t make it less disgusting.)
