International Sea Monkey Day
Ahh yes sea monkeys. The greatest hoaxÂ fostered upon children worldwide!Â Oh how theyÂ seduced us withÂ those colorful advertisementsÂ of smiling, dancing sea life. There wasÂ Mom, Dad, Buffy and Scooter! It was an underwater Ozzy and Harriet world and we wanted in!
ButÂ then – “What the hell was this?” Where’s my smiling Whoville-like sea critters?
OhÂ how Mother needed to console us that day, as we experienced our firstÂ taste of the bitterness ofÂ what life had in store. Oh theÂ shame, the unjustice, the therapy.Â
