Sara and the Mermaid Blanket


My friend Sara is a real Party Cat. She just sent me this picture. Last Summer one of Sara's friends snapped us drinking in Detroit. Come to think of it, that ought to be a song -- "Drinking in Detroit."

Over the years, Sara has proven herself to be an exceptional friend -- because she's an exceptional person. From the first time I met her, I knew Sara was special. I have an instinct for that.

For my birthday this month, Sara bought me a mermaid blanket. How perfect! Now I can relax in style. Ally-Cat style. It even came with a cute necklace.

Thanks, buddy!

  1. How sweet! And cute! Mermaids must have a special meaning for you. sort of like a spirit animal? or a personal symbol? So, for your next birthday, will you be taking a mermaid tattoo? I used to collect seahorses, for whatever reason. Yes, I also have a seahorse tattoo.

    1. Yes, they do. Surprisingly, mermaids are popular among transgender children.

  5. OMG, I've been wanting one of these!! They had them at Asos a while back but they sold out immediately...I must track one down at Etsy. What an awesome present, enjoy! Oh, and I checked out the rest of your mermaid photos, I seriously loved them all!!

  6. This is too funny! I was going to buy that for you for Christmas! They only came in one size and I couldn't figure out if it would work or not. At the last minute I decided against it.

    Glad one of your other friends picked it up for you : )
