Wow, mercury is definitely retrograde. Here's an overview of how it's wreaking havoc in my life:
1) My cell phone shuts down for about an hour whenever I read a text or try to reply to a text
2) My printer broke
3) My Reiki Master class had to be cancelled because 75 % of the attendees can no longer attend
4) A really fun event I was looking forward to this weekend has been cancelled
5) And then this:
Yesterday, I was at a bakery with my children picking up a cake for my father-in-law's birthday. I was wearing a tank top with a tea length summer dress with spaghetti straps. It's very 1950's looking -- nothing awry about it -- or so I thought. An elderly lady walked up to me, patted my back and said to my children, "Girls you should tell your mother not to show her bra in public." I was mortified! A tank top is NOT a bra. My children's eyes bulged and my temper fumed. "This is not a bra," I explained. "But thank you for your opinion." Oh, how I love living in the pseudo proper South.
I also had a very old man cut me off on a major road and when I beeped my horn, he flipped me off -- for five minutes. He literally drove in front of my with his hand out the window waving the bird at me. For five minutes. I only beeped my horn out of instinct. I had to slam on my breaks, my five year old was thrown forward. My groceries sloshed around in the back. I mean, really?
Then we stopped at the bank, and another elderly lady comes up to my youngest and literally runs her fingers through her hair -- YIKES -- and says, "Look at all this curly hair. I bet they hate it."
No lady, what we hate is random strangers feeling like they can touch us and then make passive aggressive comments about our hair.
What's with me and old people this week? I am trying to respect you for living so long and all, but hey, help me out. Make it easy for me to want to respect you.
I am praying that your first week with Mercury in Retrograde is going a whole lot better than mine.
