I swear the weirdest things happen to me when no witnesses are around. I have the worst luck ever.
For instance, my junior year at WVU, I attended UpAllNight with my two friends Jenna and Jade. The activity was palm reading; I stood in one line while they stood in the other.
I waited patiently for my turn. Finally, I was allowed in the tent; the male palm reader greeted me with a smile. And, let me tell you that was the only positive thing that happened in that tent.
He told me that I loved Sociology and that I love helping people. Okay, that’s cool. Then, he went off on this weird tangent that I should stay away from men because they’ll bring me down.
Say what now? That was random considering I didn’t ask for love advice nor really wanted it. He told me to ask him a question. When I did, he yelled at me for wasting his time on a question I already knew the answer to.
What was his problem? Did he and the female palm reader make a bet of after so many students, be rude for a laugh? Did I remind him of an evil ex?
Let’s just say, I was relieved when I could leave; good thing it was free. He was my first palm reading (if you could even call it that hee hee), and I’m not motivated to try another.
When I met up with the girls, they had nothing but positive things to say about their readings. When I told them my story, we all laughed and joked that I have a certain charm that keeps guys away.
Looking back now, it could have been worse. I mean at least he didn’t take my hand or necklace and jump back with a scared expression saying something creepy about me only having a few days to live, or that I was being stalked.
So, the question is: How did I irritate this palm reader? Your guess is as good as mine. I’d love to hear some theories…
