Thread: That Awkward Moment When: Mermaid Edtion!

  1. #2121
    That awkward moment when: you go mermaiding in a river that your human friends are going tubing down and the river is moving them quickly away and you are in the shallows struggling to quickly get your tail on and your monofin foot pocket curls under a bit and you are struggling to get it situated and no one sees what you are doing and you hear one person ask, "Hey, do we need to wait for her? Is she just chillin' there or what?" and my boyfriend goes, "Nah she is okay she will catch up." Which he says as their raft of tubes is going around a bend soon to be out of sight. Then you finally get your tail on and speed off down the river to catch up to your friends. You reach your tube and while huffing and puffing from the swim, haul yourself up onto the raft. Then you realize you pulled your tail up too hastily and it is on a bit sideways so you start pulling on the fabric and you feel awkward because you are disturbing the peace and tranquility with all this noise of pulling on wet fabric. Minutes later, one girl with your group who is floating right next to you looks over and is like, "Oh wow, she's a mermaid!"

    That other awkward moment when everyone decides to stop at a sand bar, and you decide to stay in your tail so you swim up to the bank and sit there in the shallows minding your own business while the others are talking about chugging some alcohol and for some reason they form a circle around you and you just look up at everyone standing over you chugging. O-K. haha

    Oh man! That sounded like it could have been fun! I've always wanted to take my tail down the river, but ours are so shallow (and I'm so blind) that I'd certainly be in for some trouble! Hahahaha!

    My awkward mer-moment goes like this... you're in a hotel room, you have a queen-sized bed, and you're as single as a single-celled organism... and your tail needs a place to sleep. So, you wrap yourself up in a restraining cocoon of blankets and panic all night about if you'll accidentally kick your cute little bed-buddy out of bed or not!

    I feel like this is extra awkward when you’re a fabric tail mer.

    Nope! Explain to them ankle biters that in mermaid culture, there are many types of mermaids. Some have real skin (don't say its silicone, it will spoil their effect), some have slippery skin (fabric) and others have rubbery skin (neoprene).

    That awkward moment when you find out a friend or colleague likes mermaids and you start to over-enthusiastically "test the waters" with not-so subtle references to mermaid tails to see if they would be interested in joining your one-mer pod.

    The struggles of being a lone mer in a country that hasn't discovered mermaiding yet. (Something I want to change)

    This was my first public event as a volunteer mermaid (not my gig lol), I had met up with a few mers and a professional mermaid at a Pirate Fest locally, and when i was about to get my tail from finfun on, I slipped and fell. (We were at the boat launch). I ended up getting a scrape on my knee, but it wasn't too bad. Didnt even bleed. But my shorts got wet lmao. I was fine, not hurt.

    OH, so you are that girl! I watched this a while ago, and I loved it! how is the tail doing so far? I am (hoping) to get one for my birthday, so I want to know all about it, so I am prepared. Keep up the good work, and don't let anyone tell you what to do!

    When you get really comfortable in the water and ready to try swimming underwater and cant sink. Then proceed to try REALLY hard and manage to end upside down with butt and legs sticking straight out but somehow STILL not making it down at all!

    My fiance tried to show me all kinds of ways but i guess a big ol booty and spare tire make me much too bouyant.

    That’s me!! Big ol floatty butt! I have an early video of me in my finfun trying to dive down and ended up floating back up like a cork. It took a while for me to get underwater for any length of time. Now its just practice to stay there.

    oh my Neptune yes! but usually when they ask to feel it they've already indicated that they know its not real, and me in the moment not being great at improv just agrees with them, especially since I might want to take off my tail later to swim with dual lower appendages

    The super awkward moment when you have not told your boyfriend about being a merman yet. And then comes over with food to surprise you but you are on the floor trying on your new tail.

    Good news he thought it was cute and was fascinated how real the fabric tail looked

    When you and your pod go to the pool, and there's two girls (pre teen?) with Fin Fun tails. (This is new for me because in the years I've been mermaiding I haven't run into kid mers)

    Hasn't happened yet, but I'm dreading the awkward moment when I go swimming in Lake Balaton and some kid tries to ask me about my tail while I don't speak a lick of Hungarian :')
