My brother had to clean out the back yard. The town has told him that he had to get rid of the old Chevies and his lawn mower collection. He rented a dumpster and started cleaning out the barn so he could store some of his treasures. He dumped piles of stuff including a wonderful collection of vinyl records that he had found at the side of the road.
I went through the records and found a cool Captain Beefheart album, The Spotlight Kid. One of the songs is a psychedelic blues/rock song called “Grow Fins” about a man who meets a mermaid and wants to grow fins so he can be with her.
The song gave me the title for the latest story that I ghosted over at Sciencefictional.com. It’s a flash piece called “Grow Fins”.
