Little Blog is enjoying a bubble bath. But she’s been in for a loooog time.

“Do you want to get out?” asks Dad, towel at the ready.

“No, I can’t.”

“Why not?”

“I’m a mermaid! Mermaids aren’t allowed out of the water.”

She lets her two feet, placed firmly together, emerge above the bubbles.

“What will happen if you get out?” asks Dad.

“I’ll die!”

Mom decides it’s time to intervene.

“Do you know what happens if you stay in too long?”

“What, mom?”

“You get raisin skin. Look, it’s already starting on your fingers.”

Little Blog stares at her hands in horror, then looks wide-eyed at Dad.

“You know what, dad?”

“What, Little Blog?”

“I just turned into a human again. I don’t know how it happened.”
