we had a birthday and the guy who’s birthday it was brought this horoscope book to read. We read all of everyone’s horoscopes and whatnot. I think he just wanted to read it, because on the day he way born was “the day of flamboyancy”. He’s also gay and the rest of the reading for him was pretty spot on and we all had some pretty good laughs.
But then we got to mine. Ok, so I’ve never really been into any of this stuff and always kinda judged the people that were. My response was always: “Dude you’re really going to let some old writing that someone did about a specific day that so many other people, completely different from you, were born on decide ‘this is what you’re like?’” It just seems a little nuts. But mines pretty spot on. If I were to write down the biggest problems I’ve had with my character and being and the biggest successes of the same, it would be pretty similar to what was in that fucking book. I also have been working through some tough family shit lately and realized one of the problems with my mindset that I’ve been working through was specifically written down in that damn book.
It freaked me the fuck out.
It was probably a just good guess, but the rest of the people’s horoscopes were extremely vague and didn’t really say much. Mine was very articulate and straight forward.
I’m going to go ahead and try to not turn into the Grotesques that Sherwood Anderson was talking about.
This shit is weird, man.
