    Ok. Ok. Dumb arses.

    Why do so many think we can read them. If we could we would still be disabled. The wealthy would warp us. Or use us like their hidden treasure.

    Not About To Try.

    I'm not a mind reader and I'm not about to even try. If my friends are having a problem all they have to do is say something. I'll help if I can or if they need space I'll give them some space and so forth. If someone doesn't like me, oh well! I'm not going to bother to find out...

    that I have this magical power to read their minds. I really wish I did. I need the people in my life to tell me what they are thinking and feeling. As much as I would like to think I am intuitive, when I try to decipher what I think someone is thinking I am wrong more often...
