Flo Gets Ahead Of Herself

While Flo has finally recognized she has some kind of paranormal talent by being able to talk with apparitions, she also recognizes she has no second sight.

“If I was clairvoyant, I could have prevented and predicted what was going to happen to me,” Flo said recently, over dessert at her house. We were eating some newly-defrosted cheesecake, and seated at the kitchen table where ghosts have appeared.

I was slightly nervous, being on the look-out for any spectres. But I only saw Mutt wander out of the kitchen when no cheesecake dropped on the floor. Mutt was certainly not a ghost.

“But I have been thinking quite a lot about what they call the third-eye,” Flo mused. “I even looked in the mirror and all I saw was new wrinkles on my forehead. No other eye! However, since then, I learned about other ways of knowing about people. Like being able to tell about a person from the bumps on their head. Especially if, like me, they don’t have the eye in the middle of their forehead.

“The head bump reading was a thing in the 1800s called ‘phrenology.’ Supposedly if you measured head bumps, you could tell what sort of character or talents a person had. Like if they were a murderer or a genius. I think, if we’re being honest, that’s quite a lot like being clairvoyant….”

Flo took a bite of cheesecake and a long sip of her scotch-laced Earl Grey tea. “Fads come and go, you know. Phrenology is gone, but Clairvoyance is still a thing.”

I didn’t have much to say about that, because I am psi-zone deaf. Nothing every appears to me – or disappears – unless I toss it out. For that reason, I’m truly in awe of Flo’s life-changing talents.

“For a while I thought I was crazy – that talking to dead people was all in my head. But when dead Nicholas told me some stuff that turned out to be true – I had to figure out if I knew facts because I was a clairvoyant or a medium. After a lot of research, I’m going with Medium – for now.”

Flo seemed quite pleased with her self-realization. A half-smile danced across her lips. I wondered if that was because she was finally acknowledging her gift or was, perhaps, enjoying a little too much tea.
