Or like a whale.

I saw an article on the internet about a sign on a gym entrance that asked, “Do you want to be a whale or a mermaid?” Presumably this is designed to be motivation to lose weight but someone posted a response.

The centerpiece of it was how awesome whales are and how mermaids don’t exist.

Our whole lives we’ve been led to believe that being called a whale is an insult – which is not only insulting to us, but also to whales.

After reading that little rant, I will, from henceforth, take being like a whale as a compliment.

They are intelligent, gentle, kind and social creatures. And they sing beautifully, too.
