In my dream last night, I was a mermaid with legs. The mermaids asked me “What are you?” and I told them “I am like you but I am also like them (the humans)”.
The humans were creeped out by my mermaid abilities and tried to tell me that because I looked like a human, that was what I was. And the mermaids couldn’t get over the fact that I didn’t have a mermaid tail.
This is very much what being biracial is like when you are first getting used to being “different”. #veteran
