So awesome so so awesome

Former Disneyland mermaid, Edie, shares what it was like to don a tail and swim in the happiest place on earth: Each time a submarine passed, we dove underwater to frolic about, hang upside down by spinning our tails, and to wave at curious faces plastered against the portholes. With practice we learned to smile without emitting bubble screens that would distort our faces into repulsive creatures from the deep. For all this we were paid $1.85 an hour - a whopping net of $59.55 each week.
