My grandmother use to read tea leaves. Whoever you were you were always going to meet a tall, dark stranger or come into money – neither of which has ever happened to me!
It was the first time someone hasn’t told me I’m about to meet the perfect man. In fat,she said, “there is no man in this cup. the mens has gone.” BUT… my luck is about to change!
