I’m very proud of the self portrait in this tale.
It's the result of four happy days with Powerpoint.
Yes, such things do exist.
After my run in with Max's Magic Eight Ball the recently, I decide to consult a professional about my future.
I find the exotic-sounding Madame Bianca under Psychics in the Yellow Pages. Apparently she's an expert Tarot card reader. This is all new to me, and I'm genuinely intrigued, and a little excited. I'll even forego mowing the lawn.
After some explanation of how the reading of Tarot cards works and very little by way of mumbo jumbo, the pleasant gypsy seer gets going with my reading.
She turns the first card over.
The likeness is uncanny. I even own the necktie.
There's a lot of shouting. She accuses me of tampering with her cards, but I plead ignorance with a clear conscience. That would be bad form.
Seeming to calm slightly, she points out to me that The Liar was dealt to the table upside down.
I ask her if the picture being inverted is significant.
Hefting her crystal ball, she says it is.
Apparently it means I'll be getting a headache.
And do you know what?
I predict she'll be right.
