Did you ever fancy you couldswim like the fishes? I said like the fishes . . . not with the fishes . . . this is no mafiawish list.
According to some theories,at one time eons ago we not only swam like fishes but we were fishes. Now, don’t getall excited . . . this isn’t a theological discussion . . .
Just for chuckles . . . let’sjust say for a moment that at some point in the very very very distant past that our ancestors looked something likeNemo.
Like fishes we . . .humans . . . have a third eyelid. Well,the remnant of one anyway . . . a piece that evolution has yet to erradicatfrom our biology.
Look in the mirror. See that little pink bit in the corner ofyour eye near your nose?? Women . . .you’ll recognize it as the spot where your eye make-up tends to collect.
It’s called a nictitatingmembrane; a clear eyelid that can be drawn across the eyeball for protection. Fish use them to flush out whatever annoyingparticles float into their eyeballs.
Unlike our fishy cousins’,our nictitating membrane is pretty much defunct . . . but, as the ladies know .. . it’s really good for keeping the gunk out of our eyes.
Now you see? If you had that you could swim more like the fishes and . . . well . . . see more like the fishes. Wouldn't that be swell?
