You are about to take a brief detour
into the inner workings of the Disco Mermaids.
Mermaid 1 and Mermaid 2 are always bickering about something. But Mermaids 2 and 3? Never! Or so we thought. But then…it happened.
Of course, we knew we had to share it with you!
As you're aware, writing is a very personal experience. When you’re not feeling confident about your writing, even the tiniest sideways comment can be taken…you know…personally. And that’s what Mermaid 2 did to Mermaid 3 regarding something written on this blog. Then Mermaid 3 snapped at Mermaid 2. Late night e-mails went flying back and forth until they both logged off and went to bed in a tizzy.
The next day, Mermaid 1 innocently answered a phone call from Mermaid 3...who wanted to discuss Mermaid 2. Mermaid 1 responded that maybe Mermaid 3 should apologize for snapping. At that moment, Mermaid 3 received an e-mail from Mermaid 2...apologizing for pushing Mermaid 3’s buttons. And Mermaid 3 apologized right back.
Mermaid 1 breathed a sigh of relief. Mermaid 3 commented on how easy it was to snap at Mermaid 2, probably because we all share the same dream and understand each other at such a deep level.
Mermaid 1: It’s like we’re a married couple.
Mermaid 3: Right. Except there’s three of us.
We now return you to our regularly scheduled blog post.
