Inspired by the Daily Prompt: Fortune
So in no way am I a fortune teller, but I’ve always been interested in the craft. How does it even work? I know you can go to a variety of little shacks that promise that they can tell you your fortune or read your palm, but what does that even mean? The only time I read my palm is when I write down homework answers. Is my palm really all that telling without ink?
I feel like every palm reading guide is different and there isn’t just one way of reading your palm. This also goes for those gimmicky birth stones. I could have sworn June was pearl, but some think its some light pink diamond-looking stone. I mean don’t get me wrong, I’ll accept either one with open arms, but I’m just wondering what’s real.
May be fortune telling isn’t real. May be it’s all just an act.
I often find myself watching Long Island Medium (not that what she does is exactly fortune telling but I kind of associate the two crafts in the same family) and the skeptic in me says its all just scripted, like any other reality TV show. But honestly, where’s the fun in that. Even when I see mediums mess up and awkwardly try to recover so the customer doesn’t go ape shit on them, I try to believe that its not just a money scam.
So may be I choose to be naïve, but I’m a true believer in ignorance is bliss. Whether its a full out psychic reading or a fortune cookie, hit me up.
