Mermaid Toilette

by Martha Marie

To get clean jump into the ocean from the transom of the boat, (this is scary in itself,) awkwardly lumber out again, soap all over, create an elaborate updo with lots and lots of shampoo, and return to the sea (scary transom thing again.) Underwater, wiggle all around and whip your head around to get all of the soap and shampoo off and out. If desired, climb out again apply hair conditioner liberally, do the scary transom thing again, repeat spastic gymnastics underwater while avoiding being bashed by the back ladder or the extended keel. Then rise from the sea as if transformed into a sylphlike thing of beauty all clean. Disregard saltwater residue!
