Just like the year before, I'll be blogging about my progress.
I was going through the metaphysics section at the bookstore doing a 'cleanup' and noticed we have more than a few tarot decks missing. I mentioned this to our manager and he told me a story.
He was looking for a tarot deck for a woman who wanted it for a gift and couldn't find any, but according to our inventory system we should have had five. The woman then explained it to him.
According to a few beliefs tarot can either be given as a gift, like she plans to do, or must be stolen.
This gave me an idea for a story.
It seems most of our funny stories involve the metaphysics section. Because our store houses and can order some esoteric stuff we get odd requests. I had to hunt down four out-of-print fairy decks for a coven one time. Talk about a pain in the ass.
"These cards are expensive," says one of the women.
"They weren't easy to find," I say.
"Do I need a book to read these cards?" asks the woman.
"That depends. Are you psychic?" I ask.
She turns walks away.
