I had a funny feeling that premonition was going to be the word for today, I must be psychic. Rather surprisingly the definition of premonition is, a feeling that something, especially something unpleasant, is going to happen, which as an optimist, I would prefer it to be something pleasant going to happen. This may explain why I seem to have so little luck with the lottery, or it could on the other hand have something to do with the enormous odds against winning.
During a visit to a fairground I had occasion to visit a fortune teller and during the course of my reading I told her a very funny joke which caused her to laugh hysterically, whereupon I slapped her about the face. “What did you do that for,” she cried, my reply was simple. “My life is fraught with ups and downs but I’ve always wanted to strike a happy medium.” I demanded my money back and left, after all, if she had been any good as a clairvoyant she would have had a premonition of what I was about to do and parried my blow.
Some people have a pessimistic outlook to life, constantly depressed as they have premonitions of doom and gloom, I on the other hand am an optimist and always look on the bright side of things if I can. Unfortunately neither the pessimist or the optimist can ever be really happy, for the pessimist expects the worst and is then depressed when it happens and the optimist always looks for the best but is constantly disappointed when things never turn out to be quite as good as expected.
There are always stories of people who have had premonitions of impending disaster and refused to board a plane or ship only to find out later that the plane crashed in a plume of flames, or the ship struck an iceberg, so perhaps there is some truth in the ability to foresee the future. Of course it could be that there are plenty of people out there who may also have had premonitions but chose to ignore them, unfortunately in the case of both of the previous scenarios they will never tell.
Well, that’s enough on premonitions for now, except perhaps should any of my readers have a feeling in their waters that they may have an inkling of an idea as to the winning lottery numbers, please don’t hesitate to leave the details in the comment box at the end. Thanking you in anticipation.
