Moody Monday: Manic Mermaid

Abnormal? A strange mermaid in my bedroom.

"All of us are mad. If it weren't for the fact every one of us is slightly abnormal, there wouldn't be any point in giving each person a separate name." ~ Ugo Betti (Italian Playwright and Poet, 1892-1953)
Well, there you have it and who better to know abnormal than the Italians; those whose concept of a weather report is a glowing sun on a map with the buxom weather lady shouting "el scorchio". I don't even know if that is a real Italian word as the word for hot is "caldo" and that sounds like it should really be "cold" not "hot". No temperatures, just the little glowing suns. I knew it was hot... needed to know HOW HOT! Right! "El Scorchio!" Whatever that means!

I am off topic here. This picture has nothing to do with Italy or weather reports; although the girl really wants to study meteorology. It's cold here so there is no connection with warmth and beaches and the sun and sand of Florida, although we are within a few miles of a beach. No this is just an "abnormal" photo of the girl trying on her swim cap and goggles in anticipation of beginning her South Beach diet plan. (There's that word beach again.) The plan includes exercise and she plans to swim. OK, finally see the connection here? I wish I had taken a movie of her trying to stretch that big rubber band (the cap) over that head and get all that hair up underneath, but I was laughing too hard and it would have just blurred anyway. This picture goes right along with her "sweatshirt football player pose" and her "mud facial in progress pose" and I like to call it her "manic mermaid pose".

Submission for Moody Monday topic "abnormal". (end of post)
