the narwhal.

I've always been intrigued by narwhals. I think they are magical and sweet looking and beautiful. I also always thought they were mythical. 

Uh, what? How did I assume a real animal was a legend, a story, a fake? I think thats why I always liked them; I like them like I like unicorns, fairies, and elves. I feel so disillusioned. I also feel like an idiot. Well, now I know. I wonder what else I think is mythological is actually real?

haha they are such interesting looking creatures. this post reminded me of an episode of this american life, the one about people who find out that something they believed all their life was true, only to find out later that it wasn't. like the girl who thought unicorns were real, until it came up in conversation at a party. i think that's much more embarrassing than believing narwhals are mythical, if that's any source of comfort. ^_^
