There was a mermaid in the swimming pool this morning.
Of course, no one took any notice. Everyone was just being terribly British about the whole spectacle. Even when she slithered out at the shallow end and started drying her tail at the side of the pool...
I noticed, however. Not at first, mind. It was only when I was doing a length underwater - goggles on, naturally - that she became apparent. And I don't mean her tail.
A long string of poo trailed from her bum as she swam around, like those dirty guppies or goldfish do.
Needless to say, I got out sharpish, leaving her (and the rest of the early morning swimmers) to swim around in her own feculence.
After Frobisher's 'Jackie Collins' comment (see the comments of the next post down), I'm toying with the idea of adding a couple of 'racy' paragraphs, but don't know if I dare. I don't want this to become a Not Safe For Work Blog. Your thoughts, please...
EDIT 05/04/06 17:53 - After much consideration, I've decided not to post the porn (sorry Spike). I don't want you all thinking I'm some sort of perv!
