While looking for something in the closet at David's parents' house, I found an old, little leather-bound book. Of course my curiosity got the best of me so I got it out for a look.
It is a fortune telling birthday book and was originally published in 1938. I read my fortune and it describes me pretty well!
You are exceedingly honest and frank as well as determined and energetic, but you are apt to use your energy in the wrong direction. You are cheerful and witty, good company and a general favorite. You love your family and are dearly loved by them.
Then I read David's and it described him perfectly. Then I read Georgia's and it already described her little personality! Studious, serious, loves reading. Maybe there is something to be said about these old wives' tales.
I've always believed in birth order characteristics and fit "first born" to a tee. I've also occasionally not gotten along well with other first borns and have had the most love success with middles and youngests, which is all part of the characteristics.
Now I'm quite intrigued by all of this! Any other interesting things like birth order or birthday fortune telling that I should know about?
You can buy the real deal on Etsy or reprints and kindle versions of the original Fortune Telling Birthday Book here.
