  A net is for catchin' what is real, that tangible somethin' which you can taste and feel. Life is of the waves as they crash against you, tossing you while you wait for the storm to pass.

Scales and fins of a human living, are given through bitter cold and a trust in a space that is not of dry land. And a mariners tale is worthless, who would ever give good coin to know any of it?

 Some type of fishy story of mermaids and empty seas. No one in their right mind would ever pay for nothing. That which you can't eat or understand, without bein' of the ocean, you won't. Some think that they can, but I know that they don't.
