In fact, I do have some of these powers but it's not based on people's sandwich orders. I had an incident over the weekend that is hard to fathom but completely true. Ian, the amazing owner of Telegram Poster and Framing Emporium on Ossington came into the deli with his adorable daughter Posey.
I asked Posey her age.
"Four and a half," she said.
"When's your birthday," I asked.
"Is it August," I asked.
"It is," Ian said. A surprised look on his face.
Figuring I was on a role and channeling Kreskin I went on.
"Is your birthday August 14," I asked.
"How did you do that," Ian asked. "That's her birthday."
Posey seemed unfazed by my amazing display.
I should tell you I have had two experiences of unexplained, spontaneous healing and in Grade 6 I turned off a TV set just by pointing at it and willing it off. I may have made a turning-tv-off noise with my mouth too. Also, I'm handy with a bra strap unless it's in front - those give me trouble. However, I have never killed a goat with my mind.
