Penelope's the Manatee's Story

Penelope is a bit of a hypochondriac. Actually make that extreme hypochondriac. Her friends have had to convince her that she didn't have Lyme disease. Ticks don't live in the ocean. She definitely didn't have hypothermia that one time considering she's never lived anywhere where the water was less than 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilico­­volcanokoniosis (really?!?), when was the last time she was breathing volcanic ash.

She has lately been convinced she has contracted lycanthropy and refuses to come out of her house during the full moon. Her friends have tried to point out that if she really turned in to a wolf during a full moon she wouldn't be able survive under water. Unfortunately logic doesn't work to well on Penelope when caught up in her latest symptoms.
