I have had my fortune read several times.
First one was a gypsy in a caravan at the Lammas Fair, in St Andrews. She told me to be careful not to become a mother before I became a bride. Cheeky besom.
Second one was the secretary's father who read my ring (please no sniggering). He said a lot of stuff, but I distinctly remember him saying my future lay overseas--Canada, Australia and Canada.
Now how's that for spooky???
Third one. I was dragged to some guy's house in the depths of a Telford dive with 3 other girls. My friend Deb had made the booking and her sister dropped out at the last minute--so I was the replacement. He told me very clearly that I had psychic powers of my own--I told him I knew that already :)
Fourth one--see image. In the company of Princess Anne (OK, so I wasn't with Anne and actually she'd left. I was with my buddies, Mary & Karen, better looking and safer drivers). I had my psychic reading done using colour & clairvoyance. I think I freaked her out choosing the orange and red to start with, and the purple got me a funny stare. But she told me a few things that struck home, and remember I have a good poker face. First, she said... This seems weird because it just doesn't go together, but I see your job being something to do with love or passion and I see you typing away at a keyboard.
Knock me down with a feather!! Then she told me I had problems finishing things (I denied it, though yesterday I sent off the manuscript I've been working on for 6 years, so I figure she was maybe onto something!!).
Then she said there was a number 3 in there (see image) and my success was somehow tied to a number 3. Well, I guess I did sell a short-story, but that was actually the 4th thing I've written (if I include the short story I wrote for the KOD cookbook). Maybe it will be the 3rd full length novel I write? Or a 3 book deal? Or 3 years (Oh God please NO!). Or payment of $3, $30, $3,000,000??
A girl can dream right??
