DP Daily Prompts: In Retrospect
Yesterday you invented a new astrological sign. Today , write your own horoscope__ for the past month(in other words,as if you’d written it October 1st.
According to my new astrological sign, I am ambitious, determined, patient, and intelligent. Today is October 1st, I see myself taking a trip somewhere for a few days
I do not see any project for me that is overly ambitious, everything seems to be simple, it will be a good trip for me I’ll learn a few things from it.
I see myself face to face with some sales ladies, who will tax my patience,if I’m able to succeed, it will prove my horoscope which says I’m intelligent is true.
I’m checking what my horoscope said and what really happened the past month.
Yes I took a trip in the first week of October. I went to a store in the Eaton Center in Montreal, I saw some pretty mugs I picked a couple, one for my neighbor and one for me, I went to the cash register to pay for them, the first question I was asked was, “Do you have a Bay Card?”
I replied, “No, I don’t and I do not want one.”
Well the lady would not leave me alone , she told me all the advantages of having a card, that there are ‘Sales’ I can take advantage of and a million other things, she kept talking I smiled and refused to get one.
In the end my determination slackened and I agreed to get one, she wasted no time and gave me a temporary card.
I showed patience but failed in the “determined” department.
This trip was more difficult than I thought it would be. The sales ladies are really something, I wish I had said, “What part of I do not want a card, don’t you understand?.”
The lady kept up the pressure and I succumbed , doesn’t show much determination on my part,does it?
