Crystal Ball Follow-Up
My visit to the psychic? A bust. Fun, but nevertheless, a bust.
When relating the experience to your son and all you can come up with in terms of a fascinating detail (how could she possibly know this!!??) is, “She said she saw a fish tank in our house,” you realize it didn’t go very well.
His response? (Accompanied by an incredulous look.) “Mom, you paid someone to hear that?? I don’t need a psychic to tell me I have a fish tank – I know I have an ‘effin fish tank.”
Right. Reality check. Burst bubble. But lots of laughter as my friend and I realized we’d been trying to convince ourselves we’d heard great stuff. Hmm. Great? How great is this? She said I should start dating - SOON. What’s the rush? Am I about to start decomposing in a few months? I’ll start dating when I bloody well feel like it.
As much as I really wanted this to work out, I had a premonition (ha!) that it might not pan out as I’d hoped when she served blueberry tea. It tasted yucky. And I had to drink it because she was reading the tea leaves. Some of those tea leaves were floating on top. If I accidentally sipped one with the tea, I very carefully (and discreetly) spit it back into the cup, wary of screwing up the reading. I AM A NUTCASE! And yet, she never came up with a “sense” of that.
On the plus side, she predicted a career change for my friend. Based on our analysis of this particular psychic’s ability (and the money she must make from dimwits like ourselves) my friend decided she too could become a psychic. Added bonus. She will side-line as a pimp – just for me. (You know, ‘cause I have to dive into that dating pool – pronto.) To any lovelorn but decent looking male clients, she’s going to say, “I see a beautiful, mature woman in your future. And by the way, here’s her address and phone number.”
(We share a whacko sense of humour.)
So, no great hints or predictions for my future. Looks like it’s all up to me.
Que Sera, Sera,
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours to see
Que Sera, Sera
What will be, will be…
Or maybe I should try another psychic?
