Mermaids and Unicorns
April 17, 2015
My belief in mermaids is so wide that people usually believe that they truly exist as much homo sapiens do whenever I speak about these aquatic creatures.
Mermaids are a myth they say, but I say not. Mer-folk live in the deepest parts of the ocean and only rise above once in 100 years or so, hence we have minuscule proof of their existence. They may be the reason of those sinking ships but that's only because the sailor behind the wheel couldn't believe his eyes. "A human with a fish tail? What?" I'd be freaked too. There was no talk about mer-folk – or as some call them, sirens – singing their way into drowning those sailors, that was just a campfire story to dramatize their existence. These mer-folk are friendly, well I don't meet a wide range of mermaids, but so far my impression of them is quite decent.
It's not just mermaids though, it's unicorns too.
Unicorns evolved into what we know them now as horses. They do not poop out rainbows or fart out glitter. They are regular horses with a spiral horn in the middle of their head. Some say these spiral horns were magical and so locals would hunt these unicorns down for the purpose of sawing off those "magical" horns to the point where the majority of these unicorns have lost their horns and magic. Hence, when they began breeding once again, their offspring turned out to be "hornless".
I'm definitely feeling sporty in my galaxy leggings and "I believe in Mermaids" outfit.

Of course, those short stories of mermaids and unicorns are untrue. Though, less comes to say about my interest in them. Liking them allows me to get intact with the 10 year old me, even if my interest in these creatures started just a few years back...
Getting intact with our childlike-selves is a great stress relief. Going into fantasy-la-la land just for a few moments of the week and enjoying the presence of a teenage mermaid while gossiping about that merman she's into, gives us the permission to just relax for a bit. Nothing else matters right now but that hot merman across the pond petting a unicorn.
That was a glance into one of my happy places. Do you guys have happy place?
What's it like? How do they make you feel?
