The Weekend ‐ The Zodiac and Horoscopes(C0273)
Angela: Hey Lydia, what are you reading?
Lydia: I’m looking at my horoscope for this month! My outlook is very positive. It says that I should take a vacation to someplace exotic, and that I will have a passionate summer fling!
Angela: What are you talking about? Let me see that. . . What are horoscopes?
Lydia: It’s a prediction of your month, based on your zodiac sign . You have a different sign for the month and date you were born in. I was born on April 15th, so I’m an Aries. When were you born?
Angela: January 5th.
Lydia: Let’s see. . . you’re a Capricorn. It says that you will be feeling stress at work, but you could see new, exciting developments in your love life . Looks like we’ll both have interesting summers!
Angela: That’s bogus. I don’t feel any stress at work, and my love life is practically nonexistent. This zodiac stuff is all a bunch of nonsense.
Lydia: No it’s not, your astrology sign can tell you a lot about your personality. See? It says that an Aries is energetic and loves to socialize. Angela: Well, you certainly match those criteria, but they’re so broad they could apply to anyone. What does it say about me?
Lydia: A Capricorn is serious-minded and practical. She likes to do things in conventional ways. * laughs * That sounds just like you!
