I went to this little craft show thing in Griffin, Georgia. I hate that city. It's so...farmish. I hate the country life. There were like 7 booths
set up total, all trying to sell me a bunch of crap. I only went because my friend's mom wanted me to, and his grandma was selling something there.
Anyway, they had this one booth with this weird looking guy in it that just said stuff like "Strangest thing you've ever seen" "Would you like to
know what this is? So would we!" and me and my friend were instantly like...scam. So he gave the guy a dollar to look, and he was walking up,
thinking it'll be a mirror or something stupid and corny...I was just watching from outside the booth. He got to the aquarium with whatever it was
inside it, and his face was like...different. He was laughing like "haha, it'll be a mirror" at first, then it was like...
"What the...." and the guy started explaining something to him and how he found it and that there were DNA tests and it had a skeletal structure and
he thought it was fake at first, so he had it taken to a university and they confirmed it wasn't man-made, or fake or anything. Then I was asking
what it was, and he couldn't really describe it very well. So, naturally, I had to see, so I went in. I looked at the creature and i was like...woah.
It was this small, maybe 2 foot long, mermaid-type thing. It had hair, and a...semi-human face...meaning it had a nose, a mouth, ears, and eye
sockets, but it had these weird hands. Like they had 2 claws on each of them, and had a fish looking tail. It was crazy. The hair was grey and kinda
long, and the mouth had these big, pointed teeth jutting out, and it looked kinda like a neanderthal forehead. The body wasn't scaly, but sort of
fleshy, but...more amphibious. The guy said he found it on the shores of Mississippi after the hurricane. He thought it was a hoax of some sort, but
jsut to be sure, took it to(forgot name) University for testing. They confirmed it had a skeletal structure similar to humans and that it was a
biological entity and not man-made. He was planning on selling it to some biological research facility at the end of the month or something, but
wanted to show it off while he could. Now, this is all happening on the ONE day I don't bring my camera, my friend doesn't have his, my phone is not
with me, and no one has a device to capture the creature on. So, no pictures. Sorry. It was pretty cool though.
