Ambition and complicated hats

Just before new years, I met this psychic woman. She claimed that I had once been a princess in a past life. This mainly tells me two things:

1) I obviously could have been more ambitious.

This woman said that I was a princess in a time when royalty saw common people as little more than animals (yes, you are all far, far below me). Wasn’t it kinda normal for the children of kings and queens to murder their family and take the throne back when they had such modern attitudes? I mean, what kinda lily livered, yellow, dumbass princess was I, anyway? How hard is it to put a dash of poison into a goblet? They did it all the time in those Shakespeare plays. Back then, the usage of poison was seemingly as common as the use of multivitamins are today. Although the results may differ somewhat.

Obviously I was one of those scrawny, pale things with black circles underneath the eyes who coughed a lot and died young (insert eyeroll here).

2) I will now start wearing large, complicated hats and refer to myself as "we".

I think only the king or queen can refer to themselves as "we". Besides, this time around, you live in Hellhole - quite a demotion.

Sometimes, we like to refer to ourselves as we and our. As in:

We are entirely out of wine.

And

Our cat is puking on the rug again.

I read that and my first thought was "get a frog". Hmmm. We think we may need therapy. ;)
I wonder if the words Wimple (complicated hat) and Wimp (pathetic princess included?) are actually related.

Jazz - I'm the queen of Hellhole. Oh dear...

Mist1 - very well put

Toasty - it's strange, but people keep mentioning therapy around here. Why is that, I wonder?

How come no one was ever a pox-ridden amputee in a previous life? Everyone was royalty...or Thomas Jefferson. (not that I find the idea of you as royalty so very improbable).

The better question is, what did you in your past life/lives to end up in Hellhole n this one?

BTW, I agree with Jocelyn. I find the same thing when people research their geneology. No one ever finds that they come from a family of beggars, they always find royalty or fame in the past.

yeah... She also said that I'd once been a crancy old martyr-type of person, but I just ignored that:D

large, complicated hats are the best kinds of hats, really.

Steve - damn, I'm behind on all the trends...

Brooklyn Frank - I've always thought so. And they keep the rain out.
