On an episode of TLC’s My Crazy Obsession, Eric Ducharme introduces the world to his obsession with mermaids. He doesn’t simply collect mermaid figurines, he becomes one. Ducharme has a large collection of tails that he uses to transform himself into a merman. Though he already is a certified scuba instructor, he typically free dives with his tail on and can go about 4 minutes underwater before having to surface for air!
This is one My Crazy Obsession that I don’t think is very crazy at all. Well, it’s not on the “I married the Eiffel Tower” level of crazy. I’m not going to lie, my 8-year-old self would be fangirling over Ducharme’s tail collection. I, too, was obsessed with mermaids (blame Disney) and even pretended I was one as I dolphin-kicked across the pool. Thanks to my vivid imagination, I learning how to do the butterfly stroke came pretty naturally. So four for you, Eric Ducharme! You live your merman life to the fullest!
