believes lives as per as horoscope predictions. When you throw tantrums at home for no real reason and your parents instead of giving you one flat handprint across your butt-cheeks like normal Indian parents says ‘It’s okay, it’s just an awful time for you as per as the horoscope so we know you don’t mean it’, it doesn’t creep you out at ALL. Right?
I’m not a huge fan of predictions, especially mine. For example, If I catch a guy staring at me , there are many conclusions one can deduce from this suspicious activity:
a) Clearly I resemble his dead mom
b) I have ketchup all over my face
c) Maybe frequent trips to the washroom because of diarrhoea has made me look attractive.(It counts as exercise)
My brain usually thinks it’s option c, because it seems the most obvious,obviously. Nope, once in McDonald’s someone sitting on a table across mine actually pointed to my face and gestured that I have something icky all over it. I wanted to gesture back ‘No,no those are MY EYES. Don’t worry. They are just scary because they are too big for my face.’
Luckily, or not it wasn’t my eyes he was concerned about. I feel like I have to explain this. Those frail pathetic bags that they give and ask us to shake our fries after mixing them with ‘piri-piri’ are just EVIL. Apparently if you shake too much, like they have indicated you know up and down, side to side, do the boogie-woogie No, wait that’s another song it WILL explode. All over your face. And sometimes all over the face of your friend sitting opposite to you.
What I mean to say is I can’t even correctly deduce actions in the present, let alone try to predict the future. This doesn’t stop me from reading the astrology portion for Scorpio every week, It’s become a habit. When they tell me ‘things are looking up’ I believe in them. When they say ‘don’t shilly-shally’ I ignore them and still choose to binge on Game Of Thrones instead of completing my work. After all the eyeball gorging, throat slitting and women getting raped I sometimes wish I had done otherwise. It’s like selective-
hearing erm..reading? I believe and will do in whatever I want to. Because more often that not whenever I’m convinced that I’ll have a great day today I do and whenever I dread the day and think of how horrible it’s going to be, it inevitably turns out that way. Those are not my super powers but it’s just I feel that in my case my head has a better say in my life than the stars above it.
Do you believe that you can know all about your destiny from stars in the sky? Let me know what you think.
