Last weekend, Noni, Bamfa, Julia and I went to the Cole Brothers Circus in Hackettstown (just across the way from where the Merry Go Round picture was taken). It was a pretty darn good show! On our way out, Julia got a mermaid balloon. When we were in the car on the way to dinner, I noticed that the mermaid wasn’t the ubiquitous Ariel. I asked Julia what the mermaid’s name was. She eyed the blow-up fish and promptly declared, “Her name is Lola Paralyze!” I think that rolls off the tongue pretty well, don’t you?
