I got my palm read for $5 in New York once. It was after midnight
and she was filing her nails as I walked in. The mystic took her
chewing gum out to talk with me. Professional, like. I would say

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Poorly planned tourism.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

safety; terrified running (see former); dancing round my kitchen
I spend a lot of time thinking about
