Lance and Jenifer: Who are they? You're about to find out.
You know a story's going to be good if it starts with "Once upon a time." Also if it involves mer people.
Obligatory horse page! Although I do think Samson is a good name for a big white horse with a long, flowing black mane. If I do say so myself.
Lance has dead eyes. And startlingly large nipples.
I remember modeling her bathing suit after a picture I saw in one of my mom's Newport News magazines. Quite stylish, right?
Let the record show that, although I did not use quotation marks properly, I did use the correct form of "you're." I knew this at eight years old, and some people struggle with it as adults. It's one of my major pet peeves...but I'm getting side-tracked. Back to Lance and Jenifer.
Okay, I know you probably have lots of questions. I have them too. What was it, exactly, that made her turn into a mermaid? Just swimming in the tank? Or perhaps something more...tawdry happened between Lance and Jenifer that the text doesn't reveal? Hmmm.
"It was hard to climb without feet." And that, my friends, is the line that makes me laugh so hard I snort every time I read it.
His question is, "What are you doing in there?"? Not, "Why the hell are you suddenly a mermaid?"? Huh.
"Just don't go wild"? What does that even mean? I was eight years old. In any case, I think "It had been a good morning" is my best closing line yet.
