A couple weeks ago I went to go meet a new internet friend and as we chit-chatted away and got to know each other, we somehow got to talking about religion....which transitioned to taboos...which transitioned to her revealing that she can read tarot cards and is a medium of sorts. [Tangent: OK! A few things. 1.) I know it's allegedly frowned upon by society to discuss politics or religion with strangers, but they weren't raised by my daddy. He was never one to shy away from these things with people upon introduction or just standing with in line with them at Publix. He wasn't much for pop culture laced small talk, I guess. Instead of asking about the royal baby or the weather, he would delve into the situation in the Middle East with people he would happen upon. 2.) Perhaps normal people would also be scared to see what the future held in store, for fear that they were gonna choke on a chicken bone the next day or worse yet that they would be totally mundane, but I was too blinded by the golden opportunity. Fear, for once, didn't get the best of me. 3.) No. I'm not a sudden pagaen or anything like that. I'm just the same ol fallen Catholic you know and love.] These supernatural leanings were all facts about her that I had no idea about prior to the visit, and simply things I could not let go. Within seconds of hearing the words, "I read tarot cards." I was begging her to pull them out and shuffle them.
|they weren't these I saw on etsy... but how cute are they?|
I won't go into too many particulars, but this chick totally had me pegged on a lot of things. At first, or as she started I was like, "OK...anyone who reads my blog knows that" or "This would apply to any 30 year old girl." but then a few things made me seriously go "WHOAH!" Like as in, I may have cried thinking how creepily spot on and specific they were. [Tangent: She did tell me that there are things in my life that I don't talk about in my blog and that those are probably the things I need to write about. These are the things she knew so much about, which really shocked me.] I know I am being completely vague, but all you need to know is that it was a fairly heady experience, which is why it has taken me a while to write about it. In fact, most of what she said was really positive and hopeful. These are things I needed to hear.
Maybe I could be way off base, but I feel like everyone my age is semi-intrigued with the idea of knowing whats to come. If you grew up with a mood ring or a fortune teller fish, then you probably were unknowingly tapping into your mystical side.
|I had one of these in high school. It probably always said jealous.|
Also, point my left finger at Miss Cleo and my right finger at Dionne Warwick. These ladies, between episodes of daytime TV during the summer, really tantalized me into thinking I needed some psychic friends....well, now I have one...and I don't have to pay 99 cents a minute.
