Martina writes a fun message about manatees, and I'm going to recount it for you in her own words.
I am sitting with my best friend (male!) on the sofa. We're watching a documentary on manatees. I sign and say, somewhat wistfully: "I have a lot in common with those animals; we have the same figure..." One second, two seconds ... and he answers: "Huh! Know what I see? Something amazing. An evolutionary success story, a peaceful, useful creature. And so beautiful that it can drive sailors mad with longing for this lovely mermaid. If I ever had a chance at a manatee, I'd call myself one lucky feller." An now guess what one of my favorite animals has been ever since then?
