I’m a nerd. You might not be able to tell that from this A to Z challenge, but I am. A Star Wars (and Trek) loving, Monty Python quoting, bookworm of a theatre nerd. If it’s crazy, I probably want to know more.
When I was a kid, I believed in the Loch Ness Monster.
“Believed” might be a strong word, but I REALLY REALLY WANTED it to be true. I read articles, the logical arguments for how this creature could possibly exist, what she may look like, expeditions to discover her, and why she was so elusive. I SO BADLY wanted to be one of the people to find definitive proof.
|Loch Ness in the sunshine isn't nearly as mysterious.|
|...but in the fog, ANYTHING might be true!|
Driving around the Loch, I could’ve sworn I saw some weird shadow that may have been Nessie. Several times.
Moral of the Story: Know when to let go of your childhood dreams.
