November 21st, 2008

Usually I log into the Psychic Power Network to take calls after I have gotten my first morning coffee and associated metabolic activities out of the way.

I need to be available to answer calls within two rings. So, before I visit the smallest room in the house, I check to see where I am in the queue of logged in psychics. That way, odds are good that I won’t be interrupted.

The thing about playing the odds is that your number will come up eventually.


This morning it did.

With a wad of TP jammed in mah drawahs, I picked up the phone with my unwashed hands and choked back the epithet “shit disturber” (thanks, Dad, for inserting that phrase into my vocabulary, always aimed at me. I HAVE NO IDEA WHY.)

Instead, the most pleasant, smiling voice greeted my client. “Hello. You’ve reached Gracie, extension 51650. May I have your first name, please?”

I proceeded to give him a kick arse right-on reading.

Now, I’m looking suspiciously at my tarot deck to determine just how many poo germs are on it, and if I have to wash my hands after every reading for the life of the deck.

I’m quirky like that.

Cat Says:

Wow, that’s quite a predicament. I’ve never been needed for any urgent purpose while pooping. Hmm. Maybe a new deck of cards? Nah, it’s probably too late now. Sometimes when I call an 800 or 900 number, I wonder what the person on the other end of the line is doing. Now, we know. They’re shitting.

Lawn Says:

Oh, you didn’t know? If they are your own poo germs, then you are immune. So, go ahead and feel free to eat chips next time you give a reading…you are ok! LOL

Jason Says:

Hey hows it going?

I found on I like to take an hour or two out a day to let some members of the paranormal community know about our new website, I am the elected-President of, not the United States lol but anyway, we try very hard in writing as much as we can and I am sure that you know how hard it can be to promote a website. If you have the time, please check it out and let me know what you think. I also wanted to write to you because I am interested in having you write for our newest project, Project Paranormal PLUS. This is a place where anyone can submit their paranormal-related content with all the proceeds and benefits going to charity, more specifically the Save the Children Foundation. I’m a relatively young guy and I believe that it is important to give back because when you give back to the community as much as you can, you receive back more than you ever asked for, friendship. Anyway, to not take up so much space on your page lol, I’ll leave you with our website links in case you or any of your visitors are interested.

Thank you all.

I’ve known people who think nothing about talking on their mobile while having a shit they even groan before the splash.

Larry Says:

Heck, some of my best ideas came to me with sitting on the john — and I confess, I too have run to pick up the phone when I was waiting for an important call with perhaps one or two cling-ons still attached to my behind.
BTW, you certainly scored big-time on the Commentluv contest — good on you! I’ve found an entire new group of blogs from the Commentluv contest that I don’t think I’d likely have ever stumbled upon.
Will be back for sure to find out the latest scoops right here!

Haha, funny stuff! Maybe because you were able to relax on the toilet your mind got ‘in the zone’.

Is there no ‘toilet break’ option when your in the queue? Seems a bit ‘unfair’ not to allow you guys that!
