Foreknowledge

Post by Scattercat » Thu Jun 16, 2011 10:21 am

"I am cursed," said the drunk man. He lifted his gray head, blinking muzzily. "I have visions; I see the future."

"Did no one believe your prophecies?" said the other... man? Woman?

"Bah!" The drunk sneered. "I made no prophecies. They wouldn't have listened. Why would anyone believe me? No, it has been my lot to drown my sorrows and suffer my visions alone."

"I have the gift of hindsight," said the other. "Let me show you." A single, pale finger touched the drunk's sweaty forehead. His eyes widened.

"Oh, God," he said. "I... I didn't know."

"You could have."

Truism: Whether your eyes are on the front or the back of your head determines which side the bruises are on.
