Yes, there was truly a time when that was a serious pick-up line, though I don’t think it worked very often. Even though I don’t put much stock in astrology, I have to admit I am such a Pisces! I have all the good parts—empathy, sensitivity, sensitive, caring, creativity—along with all the not-so-good parts I don’t feel like listing right now. ;)
So what’s your astrology story? Does your personality fit your sign? Did you choose your spouse because of his or her sign? Did you plan your pregnancies so your child’s sign would be compatible with yours? (Don’t laugh! I know a woman who did exactly that, then delivered a month early. Ha!)
If you’re new to Story Weekend, here’s how it works: I pick a theme and you share something from your life that relates to that theme, however you interpret it. Thanks to all of you who’ve been contributing. As always, there are a few “rules”:
▪ The story must be true
▪ Try to keep it under 100 words. Embrace the challenge! That’s about six or seven lines in the comment form. I want others to read your story, and most people tend to skip if it’s too long. I know how tough it is to “write tight” but I hope you’ll accept this as a challenge.
