Are You A Whale Or A Mermaid?

What would YOU rather be........A Whale or a Mermaid?

A while back, on the wall in the entrance foyer of a gym, there was a picture of a very thin and beautiful woman.

The caption was "This summer, do you want to be a mermaid or a whale?"

And as the story goes, a woman (size unknown) answered the following way:

"Dear people,

Whales are always surrounded by friends (dolphins, seals, curious humans). 

They are sexually active and raise their children with great tenderness.

They entertain like crazy with dolphins and eat lots of prawns.

They swim all day and travel to fantastic places like Patagonia, the Barents Sea or the coral reefs of Polynesia.

They sing incredibly well and sometimes are even on CD's. 

They are impressive creatures and are dearly loved by everyone who defend and admire them.

Mermaids do not exist.

If they did exist, they would line up to go and see a psychologist because they have a problem with having a split personality: Woman or Fish?

They have no sex life and can not bear children.

Yes, they would be beautiful, but they also could be lonely and sad.

And, what guy wants a girl that smells like a fish by his side?

Without a doubt, I'd rather be a whale.

At a time when the media tells us that only thin is beautiful, I prefer to eat ice cream with my kids, to have dinner with my husband, to eat and drink and have fun with my friends.

Us women gain weight because we accumulate so much wisdom and knowledge that there isn't enough space in our heads, and so it spreads all over our bodies.

We are not fat, we are greatly cultivated.

Every time I see my curves in the mirror, I tell myself: "How amazing am I ?! "
