Life Is Hard, There Are Too Many Decisions To Make. Me, I'm Leaving It Up To The Magic 8 Ball...

Okay, forget psychics, they're expensive and not always reliable. Me, I'm investing in a Magic 8 Ball. They never steered me wrong as a kid and they are just plain, well, magic. If you are not a true believer, you can go watch t.v. or something...

You have to get in "the zone." You have to take it very seriously. You form your most deeply held question, probably something SO secret you wouldn't share it with a soul, and then you turn the 8 ball over and up from the murky depths comes the answer. (It really IS magic!)

Wikipedia, on the Magic 8 Ball,  lists these as the 20 possible answers....

 It is certain
 It is decidedly so
 Without a doubt
 Yes – definitely
 You may rely on it
 As I see it, yes
 Most likely
 Outlook good
 Signs point to yes
 Reply hazy, try again
 Ask again later
 Better not tell you now
 Cannot predict now
 Concentrate and ask again
 Don't count on it
 My reply is no
 My sources say no
 Outlook not so good
 Very doubtful

I don't know about you but there's nothing I need to know that wouldn't be answered with one of those. I think I'm going to go out and get one. Life sure would be simpler...


  1. I had one of these when I was a kid - and that's 60 years ago, so they've been around a long time!! It never let me down. When some jerk dropped it and broke it, I removed the cube and kept it for years and used it as a Christmas Tree decoration. I think it's time to get a new one... I could use a little serious guidance in my life right now!

  2. He he he, I just loved it. I thought it was the most magical thing in the world when I was young, I was born in 1954 so we must be about the same age? I'll be 59 in April! I'd love to have one on my studio work table just for fun! :D
