The consulting room was extravagant, which didn’t surprise him bearing in mind her fees.
Sensing his nervousness, the therapist told him to take a seat and try to relax.
The incline of the chair had him gazing at a crystal studded dark ceiling. He supposed it was meant to represent a night sky, though it reminded him more of being at the dentist as a child waiting for the sniff of ether to render him unconscious before an extraction.

In his recurring dream, he was wearing fishnet tights, a tulip skirt, and coruscant tiara as he stood in the dock awaiting sentence.
The Judge said that he would be lenient ‘bearing in mind the circumstances’.

‘That’s it’, he said. ‘There must be a glitch somewhere in my head as it never varies.’
The therapist consulted her notes from their session and concluded he was feeling a saudade for his late mother, an ex call girl, who was, she implied, not unfamiliar with the legal system.
His dream attire suggested he was trying to be something he was not, which were the ‘circumstances’ referred to by the judge.
He came out of the building convinced he was fast losing his grip on reality, as his mother had been an opera singer.

Note: I chose not to use Malfunction, the missing word from last week which was substituted with ‘Pop’.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Lol…you made me laugh….my daughter once went to a fortune teller of some reputation who said all sorts of amazing things none of which she could relate to.
    Great use of the words Di.

  2. I love the description of the reoccurring dream and your use of ether. When I was very young I went to a carnival and had my fortune read. She said I would marry young, a foreign man with dark hair which I did. The other stuff has not come to pass but it’s not really anything I would personally seek out so I am totally okay that it hasn’t happened. Not bad stuff mind I was only a child so it was all very positive.

    • My palm readings sort of overlapped in their content. The first said I would die in my thirties (nice!) and have three children but not necessarily be married to their father. The second said I would have a serious illness in my thirties and would have one happy union. I suffered acute depression at that age so I guess that was it, and the happy union is definitely Hubby. Kids? Not exactly, but I fostered in a previous relationship and that was closer to 14 rather than 3.
      The ether bit was a distant memory of my own and I hated going to the dentist for years (still do, but at least I don’t get panic attacks about it now).
