Minutes (Lake Tahoe)

August 6, 2009

posted and written by Caroline Picard

  • There is a woman in Tahoe City with a closet full of cotton balls. She also has a pendulum. Every day she visits one or another of her clients, popping into to see them sometimes at work, at their real estate office, sometimes at home, sometimes at a restaurant. They gossip for an hour or so and then the woman has her clients spit in a cotton ball, which she then slips into a zip lock bag and takes home to study. Once at home, the woman takes the pendulum from a necklace around her neck and asks the cotton balls what they contain. The pendulum communicates answers depending on which direction and with what velocity it swings. In this way the woman determines which antidotes might be needed for the various traces of asbestos, depression, mercury, rage, latent sorrow or even acid that lay concealed in the saliva. Next day she delivers small vials of alcohol to those same clients, along with a note pad describing her discoveries.

  1. How much does she charge? Mmm? This sounds like a very low investment little business with certain potentail.

    i’ll look into it and get back to you…
    i think the vials of alcohol are very very expensive because they are very very potent

  3. And I bet they’re very very small also.
    bath-tub gin or just plain rubbing alcohol? what’s your guess?
