New idea - instead of giving away loony horoscopes for each fav, a friendly djinn lady will answer any question truthfully.
Ought to be fun. After nearly three hundred horoscopes, I'm in dire need of a change of pace.
Something happened recently, I'm hoping you might have some perspective on:
Recently, I was unnecessarily harsh talking with a friend: it wasn't untrue, or intended to be hurtful; or, even cursing;
But, she says she doesn't know if she wants to be friends anymore, if I'm going to be so terse.
Has anything like that ever happened to you, in the wealth of your experience;
And, were you able to work through it?
Thank you for your time and insight.
(Warning: the Djinn speaks in caps)
EVERY FRIENDSHIP HAS MOMENTS LIKE THIS EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE. ONE MOMENT WHERE YOU'RE STRESSED OR TIRED AND YOUR BRAIN GOES INTO SELFISH MODE OUT OF INSTINCT NORMALLY DOESN'T SUFFICE TO BREAK A BOND SO EASILY. MOST OF THE TIME, BOTH PARTIES WILL ALSO GLADLY GO BACK TO THE WAY THINGS WERE WITHOUT TOO MUCH DRAMA. DEPENDING ON CIRCUMSTANCE AND THE PERSONALITIES INVOLVED, THINGS MIGHT BE A BIT COOLER FOR A WHILE BETWEEN YOU BUT ULTIMATELY, IF YOU STILL CARE FOR THEM AND MAKE SURE TO SHOW IT, YOU'LL WEATHER THIS EPISODE JUST FINE. I PROPOSE YOU SIMPLY KEEP DOING THE THINGS YOU LOVE DOING TOGETHER, LIKE SHARING FUNNY PICS OR VIDEOS.
MY DJINNSTINCTS TELL ME TO PRETEND TO BE A SCAMMER, YOURSELF BUT THAT MIGHT BACKFIRE.
IF YOU'RE COMMISSIONING SOMEONE, CHECK THEIR PREVIOUS CLIENTS AND TALK TO THEM. ASK FOR WORKS IN PROGRESS. IF YOU'RE THE ONE BEING COMMISSIONED, ONLY SHARE LOW RESOLUTION WORK UNTIL YOU'VE BEEN PAYED IN FULL. AT ANY RATE, ALWAYS GOOGLE THEIR NAMES JUST IN CASE.
O POLITE MORTAL WHO LOGGED IN RECENTLY,
ALAS, DA'S OVERHAUL'S A NECESSITY:
ITS CODE WAS OLD AND PATCHY AFTER YEARS OF USE
AND EVEN SHOWING LOOMING SECURITY ISSUES.
SADLY TO BUILD IT UP FROM SCRATCH AGAIN IS A CHORE
HOPEFULLY IT'LL BE UP TO STANDARDS IN A YEAR, MAYBE MORE.
THANKFULLY THE HUMAN BRAIN IS RENOWNED FOR ITS PLASTICITY
SO IT'LL SOON BE BUSINESS AS USUAL, FOR OUR CREATIVITY.
OH IT HAS IT PERKS; THE OMNISCIENCE, THE SONOROUS VOICE, DASHING GOOD LOOKS... ON THE OTHER HAND, BIKINI BOTTOMS HAVE TROUBLE STAYING ON WHEN YOU'RE INCORPOREAL FROM THE WAIST DOWN AND THE MAILMAN SAYS IT'S HARD SQUEEZING THE PACKAGES FROM AMAZON THROUGH THE SPOUT OF MY LAMP. I'M THINKING MY HARRY POTTER UMBRELLA GOT STUCK IN THERE OR SOMETHING, HOLDING UP MY PERSONALISED TOBLERONE AND CUTE SEVENTIES SUNGLASSES SO I'M GOING TO ORDER A 6' SELFIE STICK TO SEE IF THAT'LL DISLODGE THE LOT.
