You have a fortune teller.
If you have no idea what I'm talking about, then perhaps I should post a little video so you can see Caroline predict the future. She's made about a hundred of these specimens, and she takes great pleasure in coming up with destinies that are anything but common.
Some of my favorites:
You are going to fall into a hole.
Your cousins are coming over today.
The Mona Lisa is going to say hello.
Santa is coming in July.
You are going to get a talking hamster.
You are going to Paris!
A firework is going to take you to outer space.
You are going to clean the table.
Watch out for flying watermelons.
The hamsters are following you!
You are going to have a happy ending.
The best part is watching her read your fortune. She's just as excited to discover it as you are. More, even. And for the life of her, she can't stop giggling.
That's how fun it is.
In other news, dear reader, I'll be away from the internet for the rest of the week. Me and the girls from my church youth group are packing up and heading for the woods. Yes, a week in the woods with a gang of adolescent girls. And I am in charge of crafts. How lovely is that? Even better, Sophie is coming along.
So it will be quiet around here for the next little while. I would like to imagine the woods will also be quiet...but considering the company I'll be keeping, all bets are off.
Wishing you a lovely week and missing you already...
