“I think she’s kind of proud of my ‘gifts.'”
Ever since I was a youngster, I have had this thing about watches, clocks and any kind of timepiece.
I suppose I’m fascinated by time and that’s why I’m writing you. Wherever I am, whatever I’m doing, I can guess what time it is almost to the exact minute. It’s a trait I’ve had since I was a kid, and I’ve never met anyone else who had the same ability.
Also, I’ve never owned a watch. Even when I was in college I never bothered to have one because I knew exactly when I was due in class. I didn’t need a watch to remind me.
I also am quite adept at reading minds. My mother still gets mildly upset with me because I can’t resist finishing her sentences for her. I also tell her what’s on her mind even when we first get on the phone.
Last week as soon as I heard her voice I told her that she was upset with a specific person. She is so used to me doing this, she just laughed.
She and I are on the same wavelength I suppose, although she can’t read my mind. That’s the frustrating part of it for her. But she does have a good sense of humor and I think she’s kind of proud of my “gifts.”
And one more thing. Several years ago, my roommate was distressed because she hadn’t heard from her brother in quite awhile. Without my ever meeting him, I knew exactly what the problem was. He had lost his job and was embarrassed to tell her about it. When she called him that is exactly what he told her. Somehow I had picked up on his wavelength through my association with his sister.
