Do you experience those times when you suddenly dream something completely random, and then the dream sets you off thinking the whole day? Alright, so it might just be me, then.
Anyway, I had a nightmare last night, and it made me realize that off all non-existant fantasy creatures, there's actually one that still manage to strike some terror in my heart, and that's sea serpents.
Really, I'm not joking. I don't know exactly why, but the idea of sea serpents still makes me scared. And my logic, which normally is very sharp and cynical, tells me 'Yeah, why not?'. Just think about it: We live on a planet that's mostly water, right? We're pretty sure we haven't discovered all creatures that live around us, and even something as big as the Giant Squid is a fairly new discovery, although it's been there all the time. I'm not necessarily saying there must be a Loch Ness or Seljord monster, but the sea is a quite big place...
And another thing is that a serpent would be welladapted to an enviroment that we humans are very clumsy in and practically can't see very far in: Water. Once you're in a water with a giant serpent in it who's looking for a snack - you're in a fatal situation, sir.
I can't hide my small satisfaction in finding a creature that used to frightem me when I was a little girl - and STILL makes me tremble when I think about it sitting in a small boat on an open lake. Something MIGHT just rise its giant scaly head up of the water, let out a terrifying roar, upset the boat I'm sitting in with its long, snakelike body and have me for lunch, after amusing itself by watching the little humans' desperate motions in the water itself glides so effortlessly through.
But then again, I just have an overactive imagintion. Sea serpents are cool, I have to admit that.
