I’ve been thinking a lot about this lately.
Mainly because I am a SUCKER for a Psychic.
Let me explain.
There is this one radio Psychic that goes on air every week to “filter” long-lost dead relative messages of encouragement and warning out to the listener.
I’m not sure if an actual possession takes place in the studio but in my head there are many Linda Blair antics going on behind the scenes.
(And, if you can believe it, I am even a worse driver during these radio broadcasts)
Like you could concentrate while listening to dead people.
So the Psychic begins by baiting the “311-Dead Hotline” hook with:
“I’m feeling a strong “M” coming through…Mary, Martha..Mother…do you understand?”
First caller up, and you can practically taste the willingness to believe in the listener’s voice.
“Well…. my husband’s half sister on her father’s side was Muslim”
“I’m feeling like there has been an illness lately. I feel it in the lungs and chest area. Do you understand?”
“Wow! I’ve been having the worst allergies lately!”
Close enough. I won’t nitpick.
WHAT ELSE? WHAT ELSE?
“There is a strong maternal figure coming through she’s sa….”
“OMG! IT’S MY GRANDMOTHER!!! I LOVED MY GRANDMOTHER! WHAT’S SHE SAY?”
Jeeze lady, ever even say the word coy?
“She’s making me feel that you had to make a big decision recently. Do you understand”?
Now the caller is crying.
OMG! WHAT DECISION? WHAT DECISION?!!
“Well, I recently had to go on Weight Watchers because I’ve gained few pounds”
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
Is this what we are wasting dead people’s time with these days?
On a side sniff, I think when Chuck Woolery dies he’ll make an excellent Dead Connection host don’t you?
So after hearing this, I realized that I owed technology an apology. I’ve been cursing them quite colorfully for every comment that has disappeared after pressing the Publish Comment key when obviously…
… The dead people have been doing it all along.
Placing blame correctly is important to me.
I knew the answer was right in front of me the whole time.
And for the dead record, I also blame them for accidentally deleting this post when I was trying to edit it and having to write it all over again.
...Happy Days! A whole new source of blame for me to play with!
Am I the only Psychic sucker?
Anyone else dying to talk to dead people?
