So i'm back. And just about cheesed/farmed/puppied out. Okay, not so much the last one.
No hookups with cheeseheads, or kisses with farm-hands, but i did get an interesting tidbit of information.
My grandmother is a psychic. Not one of those 1-800 psychics where you can hear the snap of their gum and clack of playing cards over the phone. I'm talking about REAL psychic. She helps cops find theifs and stuff. Well, she used to anyway.
My grandmother is 70 years old and her health is starting to fade. Her predictions are rarely right when it comes to our family. She's got about a 1 in 5 chance of hitting the correct train of thought in regards to anything familial. Which i suppose is a blessing, considering she can usually tell when someone is about to die, get sick, or have a baby.
But i digress.
I spent a lot of time with my grandma over the course of three days and we immediately bonded. My parents and I had decided to take her out to lunch and away from the rest of the family for some quiet talking time. This is where the interesting part comes in.
In between bites of cheeseburgers (from Culver's, the best place to ever reach the Midwest), we start discussing my future career. My dad started in with his usual bullshit about following in his footsteps, etc. when grandma blurts out "She doesn't want that, she wants to be in love."
I stopped mid chew and sort of looked at her. I should probably mention that she and I have never been close, mainly because she's just "not that type of grandma." But this one statement made me feel connected to her somehow. Because it's 100% true. I want to be in love. She said the words that i have been avoiding for years.
Screw the future, my career, school. I want to be in love. I want the ridiculous, head over heels, kiss me just because you want to type of love.
This statement made me sad and happy all at once. Did she say this because she "felt" it or because it was blatantly obvious? Do i look like someone who only wants to be in love?
This gives me a lot of things to think about. I just found it interesting that the one person who knows me least, out of all of the family and friends i hold dearly to me, calls out my number one priority as though it's common knowledge.
Maybe i'm just read easily...
