We (the secretaries) went out to lunch today with our two bosses. One boss is a serious kind of guy......retiring in the near future. Everyone walks on eggshells until they know what kind of day he is having. I'm lucky because I come in last and miss any action, so I've never seen it. He's always very nice to me.
As we were waiting for our table, Boss was standing next to me when the subject turned to horoscopes and astrology. That reminded me of this story, which I shared with the other eight co-workers:
My friend and I were in the mall one day and there was a psychic there reading palms. She tried to coax us over and we said, "No. We don't really believe in that stuff."
She said, "Well, I can tell you are both Aquarius." That was a little freaky so we went over to talk to her. She asked if she could read my palm and I told her I didn't believe in that stuff and she said, "I won't even charge you. I just think you would have an interesting palm."
So I let her humor herself and look at my palm. She said, "You had a life before this life. You were a dog." I just kind of laughed.
"You were a family pet who was well loved and you were tragically ran over by a stagecoach and that is how you died."
"Okay. Well thanks," I said and as we were ready to walk off she said, "To prove it you have a bump on your left shoulder." We laughed and walked off. Later out of curiosity, I felt my shoulder and sure enough there is a lump.
My co-workers listened intently. I felt my shoulder and said, "I seriously have a lump on my shoulder. Feel right here, Boss." As he reached over I snapped at his hand and let out a vicious bark. He retracted his hand quickly and we all laughed hysterically.
This is a great joke to play on your kids, too. I can see it in your future to tell that story because I know you have a great sense-of-humor! Let me know how it goes!
