Fortune in a Cup


Journaling reads:


May 2, 2010 - We were invited to a lunch at a Lebanese friend's house one day
and, after we all had too much of the tastiest Lebanese home-cooked meal,
her mom offered to do 'coffee reading' for me. I was so excited.
This was something I read about and saw in movies a thousand times before but never really experienced!


I was told to drink the thick and strong Turkish coffee until there's very little liquid left at the bottom,
then swirl it around to make the sediments cover the cup's inside surface.
We turned it upside down on a saucer and waited for the coffee grounds to settle and dry properly.


At first I thought the 'reading' will be full of ambiguous coded messages
that require a lot of interpretation on my part. I was wrong.
Although our friend's mother could barely speak English,
she was very specific about my fortune (and misfortunes - LOL!) that she saw in the cup.


She mentioned health issues that I had, some deceitful friends,
and described my precious close friend precisely down to how many children she has and their age.
She could even tell from a symbol that I was from Thailand!
(Honestly, I wouldn't be able to tell for the life of me that the smudge was an elephant!!)


In the end she told me to place my right thumb against the inside of the cup and turn it a little.
She read the impression and concluded that I was satisfied with my life
and had nothing serious to worry about. It's a relief to hear that
and I was truly thankful for this amazing experience.

More readings welcome if you can see what's left in my cup! Smile
