Reading palms can be injurious to health

Reading palms had been one of my favourite pastimes. It has always helped me strike a chord with people at college, office, building, train etc. With years, I learnt more and spoke more. Recently , I read the hand of my junior at work. I aired that she was rich, emotional and prone to gastric problems. I added that it might begin soon. Then it started.

She began the occassional leave session. She had gastric problem! Then it became more frequent. One day at tea time, another colleague received a phone call. She was sad after speaking for a while. She had lost a dear friend to cancer. The friend had stomachache which was deemed to acidity for long by local docs. A specialist diagnosed it as stomach cancer at final stage. That was it.


My junior went missing for 10 days. A feeble voice anwered the phone calls. My loud mouth made me lose a good person at work. She appeared for a day or two and disappeared again. Last week , she appeared to tend the official resignation.

I'm on lookout for another content writer. Any applicants?

Lesson learnt: Reading palms can be injurious to health

  6. Hmm...there was once a girl who was told that she missed the 'mount' (or was it mound?) on her palm that was mandatory to be a writer. The possibility of beggary couldn't be ruled out, read the holy one from her palm. The girl put on her saddest pout and blogged about the mishap. That post went on to become one of the most read on her blog. The palm-reader and the hapless girl stared at each other for sometime and had a hearty laugh over the whole thing. Does this ring a bell somewhere? ;)

    When looking for a content writer, in the requirements, do add 'Sense of humour', 'ability to take anything with a pinch of salt' before 'good writing', 'eye for detail' and other such things. :p
