The Time I Learned That I'm Not Ariel

  1. You know that scene in when Ariel's singing Part of Your World?
  2. She makes sitting/leaning/laying across a rock look so easy
  3. Then this HUGE wave comes and crashes.
  4. Her hair is perfect.
  5. She is stable.
  6. Well, one time I was with a friend who was sitting where the waves crashed into the rocks.
  7. Here she is chillin'.
    Just lil baby waves giving her hugs.
  8. Then she told me to go sit there because it was "SO cool" when the waves crashed.
  9. I sat there, uncomfortably.
    Odd angles of rock jabbing my butt.
  10. Just my luck, THIS MONSTER WAVE CAME ALONG.
  11. I fell and went under.
    She said she looked over and all you could see where my legs sticking up.
  12. AND THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED TO MY BACK
  13. HOW DID ARIEL STAY ON THE ROCK WHEN THE WAVE CRASHED?
    I was gripping the rock as the humongous wave approached, but it was USELESS.
  14. HOW DID HER HAIR STAY PERFECT?
    I DON'T UNDERSTAND
  15. Anyway, my friend made us rush back from the rocks so we could take a pic of her shoe during sunset.
    EVERY tourist we passed would exclaim, "What happened to your back?! It looks terrible!"
  16. Then we went to eat overpriced frozen yogurt.
    I just put a tshirt on to cover my cuts. I REALLY wanted froyo after the incident.
  17. When I got back to my dorm, my roommate cleaned the cuts and used blue painting tape to tape gauze to my back.
    You know the blue tape that barely sticks to anything?
  18. There was NOTHING MAJESTIC about having a wave crash into you on a rock.
