Mermaid Chronicles (Mitzi)

This is my friend Mitzi, she's an Irish American Mermaid, and very proud of that I might add. She has been my best friend since 1st grade.
You might have noticed Mitzi has glasses. I know, you didn't know Mermaids wore glasses, right? Well some do.
Mitzi realized she had problems with her eyes when she thought she was petting a dolphin but it turned out to be a shark, a man eating shark.
Who was in a very foul mood!
Mitzi is lucky though, the only thing the shark ate was her pinkie finger on her right hand. He was banished after this incident by King Neptune to the Neverworlds to do dishes for the rest of eternity and to scrap bubble gum off the bottom of every bad Merman's tail. (really bad punishment)
So Mitzi got glasses and has her pinkie finger missing, But, she is the best Seahorse activist you will ever meet. She fights for the rights of these precious little friends of the ocean .
We have handicaps some people would say, but we see them as challenges. That is why we are the perfect friends, we are overcomers.

I was afeared that Mitzi had lost more than a pinky. Phew.
Can't wait to meet another of these wonderful mermaids. I can't tell you how they make me smile.

Another flawed character marked by life. Aren't we all a Mitzi or Crystal in some way? Maybe I'm reading too deeply. Maybe not? ;) I'll be interested to see how they get along and who else joins their journey. :)
