Today, while putting away my clean laundry, I had the tv on for background noise. (Quest channel 3-4 with my antenna.) I had no idea there were so many lakes ( in USA, Canada, Iceland, Scotland) with lake-monster legends. I don’t know if there are giant creatures in the lakes. I do know that none of the photos on these shows clearly showed one.
My mind wandered while the shows (yes, I had that much laundry to fold and put away that I watched several shows) droned on in the background.
This is how my thoughts went:
If there are ‘Nessies,’ would they be good to eat and would they taste like chicken? Wasn’t there a movie about something like that?
Are they fish, amphibians, or reptiles? Mammals, maybe? Oh, I’m glad they are not giant bugs or lobsters! Worms? Oh, please, not worms!
Are they all related? Cousins, identical cousins…you can lose your mind when cousins are two of a kind. (Yes, I was humming the theme from the Patty Duke Show!)
Or are species specific to each location? Whoa – multiple sea monster species!
Do they make any sound? There were a lot of ‘sightings’ but no reports of sound.
Do they have rows of teeth like sharks? or fangs like snakes? What about tusks? Tusks would be spectacular.
Do they ever get hit by boats like manatees do? Manatees don’t seem very bright.
Could Nessie beat Godzilla? (I would watch that!) I need to watch “The Waterhorse” again. And “The Freshman!” – that’s the name of the movie where everything tastes like chicken.
Do they have some remarkable kind of camouflage like squids or chameleons? That would really be cool. Color-changing sea monsters! Ooh!
I imagine they laugh at us trying to find them…since they are all said to be very large, but few humans ever see them. They must be smarter than humans; definitely smarter than manatees.
I remember as a kid watching a kid’s show about Beany and Cecil the Seasick Sea Serpent….maybe Cecil lives! I had a Cecil toy; he had disguises, to camouflage himself.…like a green felt, Mr. Potato Head, serpent puppet. I wonder what happened to that Cecil puppet?
Try reading the list very fast like a long, breathless, run-on sentence – that is the way thoughts sound in my head. My thought processes are far scarier than any “sea monster!”
