College time. We were supposed to learn engineering. How to make electric current to go in a way we want it to go. How to make a bulb glow. How satellites work, and how a television works.
I was good in math. er. Numbers. er. numerology.
Somewhere in the middle of my engineering, palmistry and numerology struck me. I compared my hand and my lines with the ones in the book, and i came into a conclusion that palmistry is very true. Needless to say, the book says i am highly intelligent, energetic, have leadership qualities, and this and that. :D
Palmistry was another alternative way to have girls around you. Irrespective of who i am, they will line up and have their open hands straight up to me. So, I started learning palmistry and numerology.
About six months later, I became a practicing palmist during trips and camps. I started to collect as much books i can, and somewhere, I even wondered if palmistry was actually right.
So, one fine evening, I was relaxing on my bed, planning the next mischief for the next day. That was, when, my roommate came in, and asked for my expert predictions on his brother.
Me: Date of birth and time of Bith?
Him : _________(I dont remember what he said)
Me : (Calculating different combinations, this that. )
blah blah blah blah.........
Him: Man !! You are right. He is exactly as what you said.
Me: (wicked smile) heh heh
Impressed on my own success, I thought of expanding my horizons. I imagined myself surrounded my hands, of course, that of girls. Happy that I am turning into an actual palmist, I decided to have a good sleep.
Him: Oops, Wait a minute.
Me : What??
Him: I messed up his date. that was not his date, that was my cousins.
Do I need to say my usual "I didnt do something since then" this time???
