Did you feel that earthquake the other day? It was crazy. Everything shook and I knew it was going to happen. I even told my husband and I told some of my friends a few days prior. I was like, “Dude, there is totally gonna be an earthquake.” I was so psychically connected to the earthquake idea that I strapped a pillow on my head. You know, in case something was to fall on it. Laugh all you want but I have been in earthquakes before and trust me, stuff will fall on your head. Okay, I didnâ€™t do the pillow thing cuz that would look silly but I thought about it and I was wearing all my fancy jewelry. Not just to be a show off but so that when the earthquake hit I would have all my important stuff with me.
Yeah, thatâ€™s right. I am a genius-psychic earthquake-predictor. I kick ass.
What is my next prediction you ask?
Well, there is totally going to be an earthquake. Duh.
I live in California and there are going to be earthquakes. That is one prediction you can bet on. There will be quakes and every so many years there are going to be big ones. We are due, statistically speaking, for a big one any time now. The San Andreas Fault in particular is long overdue for a significant quake. It could seriously happen at any moment and if you walk around saying there will be an earthquake, eventually you get to be right and then you get to say you are psychic!
Wondering how many times I said there was going to be an earthquake and there wasnâ€™t one? Did I mention the earthquake was actually in Mexico and just shook California? Ah, donâ€™t worry about it. Remember the hits and forget the misses just like the professional psychics teach us to do!
Here is your chance to play psychic and maybe even say I told you so! Make a prediction of your own! Look into your crystal balls (your crystal ones) oh psychic readers of Skepchick and predict a celebrity death or a catastrophe or some other significant (or insignificant) event. Tell me, what do you predict will happen?
