They read my mind
I picked up The Oklahoman today and decided to check out my Horoscope. I don't believe Horoscope horseshit, but this time they hit the nail on the head. I just had to play a joke on my wife.
I waited for my wife to come out to the front room and then I set her up for a 'that's fucking odd moment.' I told her we needed to work on our budget and start saving money so that we can improve our finances. She agreed as usual; she agrees with most things I say just to avoid important conversations. I decided to give her a short break before I sprung the finale on her. I told her how I had stayed up all night because I could not sleep. I told her that I started to get tired about the time the paper delivery guy hit the front door with a newspaper. As expected she walked to the front door, opened it, and picked up the paper (that I had placed back on the front porch after I read it.)
After she looked through the comics and coupons, I asked her to tell me what my Horoscope said, this is what she read:
CANCER: Your financial picture begins to improve. Stick to your budget and save as much as possible.
Then she read her Horoscope:
SCORPIO: Be prepared for a humbling experience in your career. Listen to an elder or superior.
She turned and looked at me with that 'I just saw a ghost look!' I said, "Wow that sure is a coincidence."
