Megan Goes to a Psychic

Last Tuesday, I went to see a psychic.  Let us continue to refer to him as "Psychic Dave" for continuity purposes, even though after meeting him I think he looks more like a "Psychic Timothy."  See, he was wearing one of those newsboy cap thingies.  And don't you always think guys who wear those caps must be named Timothy?

Maybe it's just me.

Anyways, three of my friends and I showed up on Psychic Dave's doorstep at 6:45 p.m. on the dot.  He opened the door so quickly it was like he knew we were coming.  Granted, we had made an appointment, but I was feeling pretty good about his psychic abilities nonetheless.

We all walked in and introduced ourselves, and I had a momentary panic attack when I realized that one of my friends was also named Megan.  Now, I've known she's been named Megan since we were 14 years old, so that was no surprise.  But I didn't think about how that could affect our psychic readings!  What if a ghost popped in the room and wanted to communicate with one of us?  Would Psychic Dave be able to distinguish between us?

Ghost:  oooooh oooooooh  I have an important message for Megan ooooooh

Psychic Dave:  Megan, there is a spirit trying to contact you from the spirit world.

Megan #1:  Me or her?

Megan #2:  Her or me?

Ghost:  ooooooh Never mind, this is too complicated ooooooh

Yes, all this ran through my head within the first two minutes of stepping into Psychic Dave's house.  I hope he wasn't reading my mind yet, but you can never be sure with those psychics.

After introductions were made, Psychic Dave asked us all to remove our shoes before heading back to his "office".  I thought that was odd.  Did he need to see our toes in order to give us our psychic predictions?  Or was he just worried about his carpet?  I guess I'll never know.

Psychic Dave also had a dog, which he said was usually very skittish when there were a lot of people around, and therefore she may not be able to come to the office with us.  I'm not sure why that was an issue but it seemed pretty important to him.  So I took that as my cue that I needed to get that dog to like me.  If the dog liked me, I was in like flynn with Psychic Dave.  No negative predictions for this lady!  So I let this dog lick and lick my hand like there was no tomorrow.  And nibble on my nails until they were all nubby.  And  let me tell you, that was tough because I am not a dog person.  But I let her do it, because everyone knows that people who don't like dogs are the devil.  And I didn't want Psychic Dave to think I was a devil!  I try to like dogs, I really do...but I just don't.  Maybe I was a cat in a former life.  Shoot, I should have asked Psychic Dave.  

Anyways, now that I'd gotten in good with the dog, Psychic Dave told me a bunch of interesting things.  He told me that I should go see psychics more often and that water is my element.   I must have been giving him the hairy eyeball because he then said I was very intimidating.  Ha!  Apparently he didn't see me crying like a weenie at "How To Train Your Dragon" last weekend. 

Truth be told, my psychic reading was not all that exciting so there's not much more to say.  But I was blown away by some of the things he said to my friends - I seriously got chills a couple of times.  Although it might have just been from the lack of footwear.

You are a hoot! That was nice of you to make nice nice with his dog when you really don't like dogs. You cracked me up saying maybe you were a cat in your former life and should have asked him. Sounds like he really didn't tell you anything--hope it didn't cost you much.

Jayde said...

My one contact with a psycic was much worse and cost entirely too much. I got a wild hair to call one of those hotlines and the idiot on the other side was just bad! After I mentioned that my recent ex had just told me he loved and missed me she came up with this inspired prediction "I see that he will try to come back to you." Oddly enough he didn't, at least not until years later. Since then I have had even less faith in psycics. Hope you at least have a wonderful day.

Timothy knew you were only fakin' the doggy love. Why else would you get a boring reading?

Jen said...

You crack me up.

Katherine said...

I've always joked with my husband that we should go see a psycic. However, I just can't bring myself to do it. I think would giggle the entire time, and if they got anything write, I would think they had been rifling through my garbage.

Krystyn said...

How nice of you to be so nice to the dog. I wouldn't have cared...I don't like dogs!

I want to hear what he said..I've never been before.

I'm definitely a dog person! but I understand it's not for everyone. They're very slobbery.

Tractor Mom said...

That's the reason he had you take off your shoes so that you would get cold chills and be back for more!

Hmmm...I have to confess my own view is that if psychics were for real they would all be very rich, winning the lottery, buying the right stocks and shares at the right time, recovering hidden treasures and more. can't think of any who fit that bill :-) But makes for a different Moms outing for sure!

Psychic Timothy/Dave thought you were intimidating - I love it. Maybe you have some abilities and he was feeling a conflicting force. You'd be an awesome psychic - you'd let people keep their shoes on and wouldn't have a licky dog to annoy the guests. :)

bbcd mama said...

It's funny how you viewed his dog as his side-kick, possible of destroying your psychic reading. Since you didn't get any interesting info, would you go back?

Lani said...

I've always wanted to see a psychic too! Good thinking with the dog-schmoozing, even if it didn't get you an exciting reading, that's just good karma.

The ghost convo is priceless :)

Natalie said...

I was laughing most about the ghost! That story's just funny...thanks for the early morning laugh!

Happy Mother's Day! You have an award on my page. http://www.jaysonsmom.com/2010/05/my-first-award.html

Angie said...

Love the ghost bit! I really don't get why you had to take off your shoes.

I gotta say, this does not make me eager to go visit my local psychic any time soon. I love my dog, but not other people's dogs...unless they're small and generally non-licky.

Thanks for the laugh!

I love your blog! Very entertaining. I never thought about how confusing it might be to have two people named Megan, so very insightful. If you have ever watched "Crossing Over with Jonathan Edwards" you know how it goes sometimes. I always wondered why the spirit couldn't be more specific. Edwards is always saying, "Did someone lose a husband, his name starts with a 'P'?" Why can't the ghost just say "Paul" or "Peter"? Something to think about!

I'm fascinated. I would love to get a psychic in a room to grill them on their "technique".

Erin I'm Gonna Kill Him said...

He told you that you need to see psychics more, ha ha. Now clearly Dave is also a business man on top of being a psychic. Unless he told you to see a psychic named Sherry.

Anti-Supermom said...

I'm totally laughing over here that he made you take off his shoes, he should have *sensed* that you all wanted to know 'what the heck for?'.

LOL.

Andreina said...

haha, that's too funny

Hey Megan,

I had my own "psychic experience" this past fall. Some of her comments were generic, but some of them were very targeted. I was surprised she seemed to know a lot more about me than I thought possible.

Oh, and thanks for visiting my blog, too!

Cheers,

Kat
