I had another one of those unhoroscopes today:
“In one culture, it’s unlucky to wear your clothes inside out. In another, getting married on Tuesday spells relationship doom. You’ve your own ideas on the subject, and they’ll dictate what you’re willing and unwilling to do.”
Here is my idea on this horoscope subject: HOW IS THAT A HOROSCOPE? It’s not a forecast, not a prediction of any future events. What it is, is a factoid (two actually) thrown in with a rather loose opinion.
Willing or unwilling to do? So I may or may not do something? Based on my very own ideas? That pretty much sums up living for…well, pretty much the human race. It’s called free will, Horoscope Writer Person.
I mean, that’s a real job, y’all. Sheesh.
Anyway, I would be even more upset this morning if I hadn’t used one of these unhoroscopes to inspire my post at The Muffin: The Extroverted Introvert (In Other Words, A Writer). So I suppose I did have my own ideas on a subject and I was willing to write about it.
That’s a pretty vague one, for sure. They need to hire a new horoscope-writer.
Maybe a bunch of us will start a fortune cookie/horoscope writing business. Surely we could do a better job…
I really, REALLY, have to stop reading your posts on my phone the second they appear in my in-box, because I keep forgetting to come here and comment once I’m at my laptop. Anyway, I agree with Sioux. We should begin our own horoscope writing thing. I already have one for myself: “Stop forgetting to do things. It annoys yourself and others.” Ha. 🙂
