The Fortune Teller
Miriam decides to seek the help of a psychic. She looks through the yellow pages and selects MISS BASHERT, primarily because her advert seems to indicate that she has had a lot of success in Tarot Reading
Later that week, Miriam's with the psychic in a dark room with just a flickering candle to provide some light. For the last ten minutes Miss Bashert has been silently gazing down at the Tarot cards laid out on the table in front of her. Then suddenly she speaks.
"There is no easy way for me to tell you this, so I'm going to be quite blunt with you."
"OK," says Miriam, "I'm ready for the bad news. Fire away."
"You must prepare yourself to be a widow," continues Miss Bashert. "The cards clearly show that very soon your husband is going to die a grisly death."
Miriam sits silently. She stares at the cards, then at the candle, takes two deep breaths and feeling more composed, looks Miss Bashert in the eye and calmly asks, "Nu? So will I get away with it?"
