Mystic Mania

I've always had this dream to go to a psychic. Not that I would pay for it and not that I'd put much stock into what they said, but it'd be an experience. And heaven knows I love those.

Luckily, it was in the cards for this girl. A friend from middle school asked me out, and I said jokingly, "Please tell me we're going to get our palms read." A few days later, Victoria had us scheduled at 7:30 to see our destiny. 

First, the palm reading.

After making an off-color remark about my thumbs, she told me many things. Some were right, some were wrong. The most glaring mistake she made was saying I loved expensive jewelry. Remember how I don't even want a diamond wedding ring, lady? She didn't. But she piqued my interest when she said, "You've got great communication ability-- writing, speaking-- the works. These are the hands of a writer." I allowed her to proceed. She said that I'm intuitive, and my friends often come to me for advice. Then she repeatedly, and profanely, told me I was a genius! I've got such a brain! This lady really knew what to say to a lady. Except the jewelry thing, because... DEAD WRONG.

I then pulled my animal card. Mine was the swan, who does all things gracefully. A fact about me is that my name means graceful, and I've been teased about it my whole life. That's why it is one of my lifetime goals to actually be described as graceful. The awkward duckling may one day turn into a swan. Well, if you believe in this sort of thing.

I then picked my angel cards. Now this was the one that got me. I picked out Soulmate, Music and Trust. She said music is very important to who I am, it's how I get through things. She said I'd thought I had met my soul mate, that it was leading to marriage but then he blew it and broke my trust. The next cards had more hope in them...

They were the devil, the world and the fool. The devil described the fellow I was with. We got a kick out of that, and actually it wasn't far off. The rest of it described how I like to trust people easily. But she left it very hopeful, saying that I had either just recently or will soon meet-- did she use these words? I can't remember-- the love of my life. 

It was mystical. It was odd. It was sometimes true, sometimes false. In any case, I'd like to thank Victoria for a fun night and helping me check this little guy off my list.
