So I was at the elementary school I volunteer at the other day and was witness to what I consider to be the most accurate future telling on the face of the planet, nay, Earth. It went something like this…

Who’s your boyfriend
Let’s find out
Then they started going through the alphabet while the person seeking the identity of their boyfriend jumped rope. Whatever letter was the last to be called out before they got caught up in the rope was the first letter of their future boyfriends name. It was nothing short of magic. I mean, I know children are our future but did you know children can tell our future??? They’re amazing!
Think about it. If more adults would just go to the playground and take part in this jump roping miracle they could cut through all the bull of dating and such. It would be like “Oh, your name is Bill? Sorry, my boyfriend’s name starts with X.” Like, you would know that Bill wasn’t right for you straight away. That would save SO much time!!! Also, how exciting to guess at what the initial stood for. I mean, say you landed on P. It could be Peter, or Paul, or Procopius, or Pavel, or Promethius. The possibilities are endless! Well, not exactly endless– but there would be a lot of possibilities.
Next week, I fully intend on having the first initial of my future boyfriend. I suggest all you other single ladies go to the nearest park or elementary school and jump rope with the kiddos so they can tell you your future. Just, try not to make it creepy.
