Psychic Reading

Date: Aug 22 2008

Themes: Alternative, Religion


1. Learn Vocabulary - Learn some new vocabulary before you start the lesson.

2. Read and Prepare - Read the introduction and prepare to hear the audio.

The problem with knowing about the future is that it’s never enough. No matter how much you know or think you know about what will happen, there will always be questions. Repeat customers are how psychics stay in business. That, and the fact that they are often surprisingly accurate. Listen to Marni tell Jason about the questions that came up during a recent psychic reading.


1. Listen and Read - Listen to the audio and read the dialog at the same time.

Marni:  Oh my God, Jason. I am totally freaking out.

Jason:  What?

Marni:  I just had this totally crazy tea leaf reading. Have you ever done that?

Jason:  No.

Marni:  So, you get a pot of tea. You drink it. And they, like, read the leaves. And I was told that in a year, I could either have a completely new relationship or a child.

Jason:  Really?

Marni:  Isn’t that crazy?

Jason:  That is crazy.

Marni:  Yeah.

Jason:  It’s really crazy when psychics give big predictions like that that may cause you to do something drastic.

Marni:  Right. Like, the new relationship thing, that could be a lot of things, but she said, “You know, I see a child in this.” And I was like, “Oh my God! I’m gonna have a baby?”

Jason:  Are you trying to have a baby?

Marni:  No! Scary! Extra protection. But yeah, there’s so many forms. I was like, “Maybe I’ll go back and get my palm read or something and maybe that will tell me more.”

Jason:  Maybe. Where’d you find this woman?

Marni:  There’s this psychic tea shop right by my house.

Jason:  She’s got a whole business set up.

Marni:  A whole business and there’s, like, a whole menu. You can get tarot readings or you can get the tea leaves or you can do a really in-depth reading. She’s a medium so she can go into…and like contact people from your past…

Jason:  Holy smokes!

Marni:  I know. I was thinking about talking to my grandmother. And my dog. She can totally talk to your dog. My dog seems like he’s having some issues, so I was like, “Maybe I’ll have the medium come in and tell me what’s going on.”

Jason:  That’s amazing.

Marni:  Yeah! Isn’t it crazy?

Jason:  She sounds pretty legit.

Marni:  Yeah, she’s pretty dead on with some things like, I’m definitely at a transitional period in my life and those things and yeah, maybe that seems open ended, but it’s totally applicable.

Marni is a little worried. A woman who reads tea leaves in order to tell the future told her that in a year, her life could be totally different. She might have a new boyfriend or a child!

This information makes Marni want to get more psychic readings. The woman who read the tea leaves for her also does palm reading, tarot cards, and can even talk to the dead or animals for you!

Marni trusts her psychic because some of the things she has told her, like the fact that her life is in a transitional state, seem accurate. Of course, the predictions could simply be broad enough to apply to anyone. It’s hard to say, but the promise of knowing her future interests Marni. Does it interest you? Have you ever had a psychic reading? Was it accurate?
