"but you've already got a Tarot deck!"


I am bemused.

Amused, and bemused.

I don't inflict Tarot on my friends, but I don't hide it, either.

My daughter's equal-best friend, K, has a mother called M who is a teacher at my daughter's school and was really good to her when she and I were living in different states for a few months. M took me shopping last week because her daughter had in turn been staying with us - the groceries she funded were at once a way of not feeling guilty that I was feeding her kid, and saying thank-you to me, and I was quite happy about it.

I was - well, I *wasn't* expecting a parcel from the Tarotgarden, because the main parcel had already arrived. However, Umbrae had mailed a part of that consignment separately to me, the Blue Moon, a slim 22-card deck. First, it was sent some time after the first parcel, then when it was reasonable to assume it might have arrived, I had a house full of teenagers and assignments for my course to do, so I didn't get around to going to the post office. So when M took me to buy groceries, I jumped at the chance to pick up my parcel.

And it was there. I was delighted. I was jumping up and down, saying "My parcel's arrived! My parcel's arrived!" M was smiling indulgently at me. As soon as we walked out of the post office into the sunlight, I was ripping into the corner of the parcel. Umbrae is a bit of a fusspot, and had sealed it very, very well. M told me to calm down, I'd know what it was soon. I said I already knew - it was a Tarot deck.

She looked completely flummoxed.

"But you've already got a Tarot deck, haven't you?" she asked. She simply couldn't wrap her mind around wanting another one. She still can't.

One day, I'm going to have to spread *all* my decks all over the table - and floor - when she visits.

As if one could be enough! Either M is mad (as in crazy) or I am!

Ive already got a book in my house, but - oddly - keep buying more too. Insane isn't it?

Ive also already got a CD and keep buying more of those too. Just can't control myself.

And - gosh - imagine life with just one tarot deck and nothing in the post except phone bills and electricity bills...

<sadly> Poor thing, she's completely Tarot-deficient.

It's like being born without eyes, or with no fingers or something.

Yeah, my boyfriend says the same thing. Why do you need more?

They just don't get it.

Until... I asked him why he needed more than one camera. He shut up right away and hasn't bothered me again!

Poor things. They don't understand. Low TQ (Tarot Quotient). Low Kitty Quotient -- same difference.

Yep, my boyfriend is like that. I have four tarot decks, five if you count the one I'm thinking of trading off, oracle decks as well. And M really does NOT understand, bless him, why I want more than one deck. I despair at times. He goes along with it, because he's like that, but the quizzical looks he gives me at times.
