Best Pick-Up Line. Ever.

This happened a while ago, but it's still rather funny and rather awesome.

I like taking long baths in the middle of the afternoon, with a nice book. Sometimes I read novels, sometimes I read non-fiction.

This particular bath, I was reading my tarot book, the companion guide to my deck, The Animal Guide tarot. The deck is about animals (obviously), with the Majors and the Court Cards as deities. The King of Swords happens to be Quetzalcoatl.

So, I'm sitting quietly, reading about the King of Sowrds and...


I'm sitting quietly in the bath and Quetzalcoatl seems to sense that *something* is happening with him, or about him. So, he comes to investigate.

He's all excited, because he's in a published Tarot deck. Excited like, pre-teen girl at Twilight premire* excited.

But suddenly, he goes all suave, and in the slickest, most bad romance novel voice he says "you know, I'm in that book."

And all I do is laugh, because it sounded like the worst pick-up line I have ever heard.
Now it's become a running joke between me, Quetzalcoatl, and my friend Lisey, who adores Quetzalcoatl (and he thinks she's pretty cool too)

*I know not all pre-teen girls are obsessed with Twilight, and I know not all people obsessed with Twilight are pre-teen girls. But, we know how the fangirls act, and a majority of the vocal ones are pre-teen girls.
