Failing with My Intuition

A bookstore in Erie is closing. I’m questioning where the book “If We Were Villains" is located.

Voice: “Don’t worry about it.”

Me: “I’ve heard too much about this book. Besides, when do we have a $100 gift card?”

Voice: “You’re going to have it soon anyway.”

Me: “Yeah… how?”

Voice: “You’re going to win it. The readathon raffle is tomorrow.”

Me: “Yeah. Like I’m gonna strike gold.”

Driving home the next day, watching the live wrap-up party…

And for the giveaway winners… Rachella from @RachellaPage …

I’d have done the scavenger hunt anyway, it was fun.

Me: “I won.”

Voice: “You’re welcome.”

This is not the only time I fail to listen to that internal voice that warns us of danger or prepares us for positive things. Yet she keeps trying. Maybe next time, I’ll listen.




Wow! Did you notice that? It was your day flying by. This publication is your place to enjoy stories of 150 words or fewer about plants and people, wild animals and pets, gardens and food, how-to and how-not-to — written to inform and delight. Did I mention humor?
