surfing for mermaids?!!

what do u think of that title??
that elusive mermaid that possessed his mind throughout his adult life,
 was it like crazy people that believe they had alien encounters, on mysterious driveways of outer suburban/ country KC , missouri...
all stemming from his encounter as a child when he believes(??) he saw this mythical creature...
the voices echoed in his mind from that encounter...
it was a melodic enticing honey laced love song that sounded part human , part melodic mammal
he was starting to get near sighted before his 10th birthday, so he couldn't tell the gender of the
person(??) or marine mammal
the early morning mist and fog made it more difficult to see the creature..
 the ocean was as still as a calm lake which made the moment even more magical
as the boy would love fantasy stories of mythical creatures...
and would often sing "puff the magic dragon" who lived in hona lee as he ran to school on the grass pathway to Broadbeach state school
his schoolmates would laugh at him when he told them about this amazing visit
and even his parents would question him as if he was  mentally disturbed
and even had him see a kid shrink...
so he learned to keep his mouth shut about the whole experience...

this melodic sound would invade his mind and haunt him until he had to come back to the sea
to hear this song(??)
that would only be heard on very still mornings when there was very little wind...



is that one hundred words, LA??... i need to do this religiously when Im in Oz, if I ever have the hope of putting something together the great american/aussie novel...
100 words a day x 100= 10000 words... is that even enough for a novellette..
like the Hobitt was the beginning of the famous Tolkien trilogy...
don't roll ur eyes!~!
