secret 25 - psst, over here

psst. over here. i've got a juicy rumor for you. did you hear that...

nope, i'll stop there. because the truth about me and rumors is that i have an uncanny ability to make rumors be true. i've even tried it with ones i made up all by myself. and every single time, they end up true. so it's pretty dangerous with me and rumors.

in my previous two jobs especially, all of the rumors i was involved in turned out to be true. people began to realize it and they had a kind of awe. if you're known to be the possessor of good information, it turns out that people often come and give you good information. which then nicely feeds your reputation and enables you to continue.

people would come to me with tales of problem colleagues and we'd discuss their transfer to outer mongolia. or west africa. and before you knew it, they'd be packing their bags. and it wasn't that i worked in HR and could actually arrange for these transfers. i think it was more of a sixth sense or an ability to see a situation and make an accurate mental assessment.

thankfully, i'm not actually using that ability much these days. and i have to tell you, it's really nice for a change. i try to use my magic wand only for good these days.

Um, can you use your magic wand to transfer me to Bali for a while? Or perhaps Hawaii? Anywhere with a beach and liquor will suffice.

Hmmm I was trying to think of a good rumor for you to start about me, but really I got nuthin'.

Ohh I know. How about spread a rumor about my shopping all day sunday. It's my only day off and I'd rather do that than clean house or do laundry. You can start the rumor with my husband, I'll take it from there.

i could think of a couple of rumors I need you to spread, like did you hear the one where I got a job? *smile* (surely it will happen if you spread it around)

OK so seriously - maybe you just have more influence then we know - you sent them packing I am betting ;)

I too could use a rumor of money...or a job... :)

I know the feeling though, causing things to happen...well, I'll just go now. Nice blog though! :)

o0o that's a strange sense. I have a similar thing happening to me at the moment, all the things I want are just happening. Except one. Which I want more than the rest... hmm..

I'm Kim, by the way said...

That's a great secret! And gift/skill! I have the knack for guessing when women are pregnant -- sometimes before they know it. It's weird.
