Magic 8 Ball

magic8ball

I wish I still had my Magic 8 Ball. It was a killer way to make decisions.

Does he like me? Will he ask me to dance? Should I wear my sparkly shoes?

The simplest way to know all of the universe’s plans for me.

Things have changed since then. There are some things I just know: I should ask him to dance. Always wear the sparkly shoes. Dare greatly. Live with an open, honest heart.

But I still want to ask “Work or play?” today.

Except I’d make sure that my Magic 8 Ball always answers Play.

I think that says everything, doesn’t it?

  1. I never had a magic 8 ball, but I know the few times I ever used one they were crazy accurate. Weird how what you put out there comes back to you.

  2. Yes! always wear the sparkly shoes! And play, play, play. It beats work any day of the week.

    I love your new blog, Brandi. It looks amazing.

    Skype soon?
