Day 448: More Fortune Telling

Yesterday’s post included some interesting and perhaps unexpected Fortune Tellers, including

  • Zoltar from the movie Big,
  • Sherlock Holmes,
  • Big Al,
  • a deep sea diver,
  • a chef (actually, Zoltar wearing a chef’s outfit),
  • a bird named Chad, and
  • me.

You can find most of these Fortune Tellers at the Characters Unlimited, Inc., website. Personally, I was so captured by that site, that after my first trip there yesterday,  I’ve come back to it several times.

I’ve re-visited that site because of (1) my interest in the human habit  of Fortune Telling — our thoughts going to the future, no matter how much we may try to stay “in the moment” — and (2) the many interesting characters there, sitting in fortune-telling booths, including many I have not shown you.

Yet.

In this post, I am going to take you, again, to That Fortune Telling Land of Unlimited Characters.

Why?  Isn’t it obvious? There are some great characters there, people!

Also, I need to go there, for some fortune-telling assistance, because this week holds some challenges for me. The biggest challenge, for me, is a one-night journey to The Hospital. Now, this week’s hospital visit is much different from times I spent in the hospital when I was a child, because:

  • I am going voluntarily, for a sleep study.
  • It’s a different hospital.
  • I am an adult.

I had some trouble thinking of differences, just then, which doesn’t surprise me.   Fortune Teller Cool Cat says:

“When you encounter things now, that remind you of scary things from your childhood, you can go cold with fear, and forget how safe you are.”

Fortune Teller Bear says:

“When you focus on things you’re looking forward to, that makes things more bearable.”

Thank you, Fortune Telling Cat and Bear. That was very helpful.

This week ahead, the day after my sleep study, I am going to see a jazz musician I’ve loved for a long time.

Ooops!  Wrong jazz musician. Let’s try again.

On 3/27/14, I’m going to see Pat Metheny and his Unity Group with my friend Peggy (who went to Panama with me).

After going through that sleep study, I hope I can stay awake for the concert.

“Arrggh, Matie! Don’t you worry about that!”

Thank to Characters Unlimited Incorporated again; to ntexas99 for catching the secret identify of the Fortune Teller Chef yesterday; to Pat, Peggy, and other old friends of mine;  to fortune tellers everywhere (whether they be characters or not); and to you — of course! — for visiting me here today.

  1. Exciting! Not the sleep study — well maybe that is too. But definitely going to see Pat Methany in concert! enjoy!

  2. Sleep Apnea or Restless Leg Syndrome, or both?

  3. Hope the sleep study yields good results! And the concert is such a great reward for getting through the sleep study!

  4. May you pass the sleep study test without staying up overnight to cram, Ann. Have fun at the Metheny concert, too. One fortune teller story for you. When I went to Asbury Park to chase the Ghost of Bruce Springsteen, I saw the Madame Marie booth on the boardwalk, just as the Boss sang about in in his great song, “Sandy (4th of July Asbury Park).”
