At a gym entrance was a picture of a thin woman. "This summer, do you want to be a mermaid or a whale?” a woman (size unknown) answered: “Dear people, whales are always surrounded by friends. they're sexually active &raise their children with great tenderness. They swim all day &travel to fantastic places. They sing incredibly. They are dearly loved animals everyone defend&admires. Mermaids don't exist. I’d rather be a whale.
