I love the way the minds of little kids chooses to express themselves. Last night the kids talked me into going to the community pool. Noah and Eve got into a belly-flop contest that lasted for about 20 minutes. At one point Eve tells me, "I feel like a cross between a fish and mermaid." Dad stops to scratch his head for minute. She didn't say she felt like a mermaid. Nor did she say she felt like a cross between a fish and person. I can only conclude that she was trying to describe a feeling about halfway between being a mermaid and being a complete fish. Anyway, I got a real kick out of her choice of words.
