I happened to look at my calendar today and found out that it's March. In fact, it's the 8th of March and I'm missing a whole week. I am also missing an hour since Daylight Savings Time starts today. I guess Daylight Savings Time is some sort of government holiday because I don't think the rest of the world cares. It's just another day that mail isn't delivered and since it's Sunday anyway again, it's a holiday that just doesn't matter to normal people like me.
Well, anyway I have some pretty important predictions for March. For one thing leprechauns aren't going to be welcomed at most hotels in Northern Michigan for St. Patrick’s Day because of the nasty way they tore everything up last year. I mean that they came up here from Bay City last year and just tore every hotel that they stayed in to ruins. I mean those little guys caused some gigantic damage. For instance, at one of our best hotels the little guys ripped all the newspaper off the walls and ceilings and burned it in the wood-stove. So, that hotel didn't have any insulation in it for the next six months. It took that long to gather up enough old newspapers to cover all the ceiling and wall surfaces.
Leprechauns did even worse damage at a prestigious downtown hotel when they cut peep holes in all the outhouses so no one had any privacy when they had to see Mrs. Jones (Mrs. Jones is what my grandmother use to call a toilet.)
Now, I do have other predictions, like the one about what happens when a bear walks into a forest in the spring? All the trees are scared into leafing. Ha, Ha. But seriously, March is going to be a month with unstable temperatures and icy roads. Some people will finally take down their outdoor Christmas decorations and realize after finding all the holes in their plastic reindeer that those were gunshots they heard on New Year’s Eve and not firecrackers.
Well, I got to wrap it up now. I'm predicting that I'm going to have a busy time this month since with all the melting snow many people will be having their septic tanks backing up into their trailers. Most people I know can't afford a professional to fix their problem so they call on me to see if I can drive away the evil spirits with a séance and hence, keep the spirits from gurgling up from just below ground level. Sometimes I can, sometimes I can't. I still charge $10 whether I'm successful or not. I should charge more but, I've found that if the client is only out $10 then, if things don't work out I'm not so likely to be turned into the authorities again. Fines and bail money can really eat into an honest psychic’s profit.
