I recently returned from a trip to Vegas, and we all know what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. That and if you are in Vegas for three days, you are there two days too long. I could have just as much fun going to Dilworth for a lot less money. But I was in Vegas, so when in Vegas act like the crazies who are also there. Maybe that's why I did something I swore I'd never do. Nope, it's not prostituting myself out, staying sober for a four hour stretch, or going "commando". It was paying good money for "a reading". I have a sneaking suspicion psychics say general comments, judge your reaction and run with it. So, I saw the sign "10.00 for a palm reading, 20.00 for a tarot card reading." I walked through the curtain of beads into the "buggy" and sat down. I handed her a $20 dollar bill and asked for the palm reading. She said, "Are you sure you don't want a card reading? It is more detailed." I said, "Ok. Sure." She laid out the cards and began. "The things I tell you are not to personally hurt you. You must understand this." I nodded thinking, "oh crap... I've been paranoid all these months for good reason." She continued, "You will live a long life, well into your 80s or 90s." That's not a stretch, the expected life span for a woman is in her 80s. "I am picking up that you have a good heart. You are a good person." This is something I've been struggling with a lot - i.e. CONSUMED with lately. Too many people have been telling me I'm not a good person, so I've been obsessing about it. This brought tears to my eyes, but I tried desperately to hide it and stay with a flat expression. and thought- great, THIS is what she'll run with. "I sense you are feeling torn in two directions your heart tells you one thing and your head tells you another, this is causing great unhappiness. You have a friend telling you to go in one directions, but the decision must be your own and you must take your time in making the decision. You are afraid you will get hurt if you go with your heart, but within the next 18 months you will be happy. You value love above money or material things. You are saving up for something (she got that because I was only going to pay for the 10.00 reading when I had a $20), it will take you a very long time to save. (Because I caved and gave her the 20). I see three trips in the next 18 months for you. These with be trips for pleasure, not business, and you are happy and with friends. I see a career change and a move across country in your future.You are very happy with your new career and move. (What?? I'm getting fired?! I would never move away from Moorhead while the kids are in school) I see you miss a friend deeply, but are scared of reconnecting because you don't want to get hurt. You are most afraid of being hurt emotionally (duh... isn't everyone?) You will have someone from your past connect with you in the next 18 months who needs help. I sense you do not respect this person, or their choices. You should help them financially, but do not get emotionally involved, or you will be hurt." I'm thinking, "I can't help anyone financially, I'm getting fired" As she continued, "You have to dip into the money you are saving to help this person, but consider it as paying to get this person out of your life forever." Who am I hooked up with? The mob? "You have two children. (that part was like-woo-woo- weird... maybe she is for real, but in reality, most people who have children have two) your children will be OK. They will always be alright." That was the end. Now I am going to read this post in a year and a half and see how much is true. Oh- and now I know, I'm not just paranoid, people really ARE out to get me.
