Is it strange that when I'm in the bathroom I stare into the mirror pretending I'm on camera and answering questions about my currently unpublished book? My son often stares at me as if I'm a martian standing in his mother’s bathroom. Of course I do it only when my husband is asleep or not home. He would definitely call me crazy if he ever saw how in-depth my make believe interviews actually were.
I told my sister I was going to be a well-known author one day; and she of course laughs at me and gives her best sisterly advice that I seek immediate help.
I'm a Gemini. Period. We believe the impossible is always possible. It is what makes us so spontaneous and charming. I recall reading the characteristics of my birth sign and I damn near fell off my chair. All of it was true down to the getting bored easily part. My mother always said I was definitely a true Gemini, I guess she was right.
However, the down fall of being instilled with such a boundless insight on life turns out to be both a gift and a curse. Most times at the end of the day, I always ask how the hell did I get myself into this situation. Thankfully I married a Virgo who tends to keep me grounded and safe from reaping consequences of half cooked ideas.
Despite my sister’s advice, I have a strange feeling that I will leave this earth with two profound legacies, my handsome son as well as a published manuscript.
