Cranky Large Medium reading, 30 January

Go away.

Are you gone, yet? Why not? Did you miss the last shoe out of here? Shank's mare you can ride bare. Now, skedaddle. And, yet you stand here. What is it you want? Oh, right, you want that reading everybody always asks for. Well, so much for originality. You get what you ask for. Here you are:
You are capable of exerting a great deal of influence over those with whom you come in contact, you big bully. Cut that stuff out or I'll tell your mother. Spend a little time working on an underused muscle: your mind. You might also learn to express your passionate love, not that it will do you any good, but it makes for a good show for the rest of us.
Are you happy, now? Of course not. But never mind. Look on the bright side. Even though your life is depressing, at least it's more than these people have, all of whom, on this date in history, rode out accompanied by a man on a pale green horse: Emperor Takakura, King Charles I, Tsar Peter II, Emperor Kōmei, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, Johannes Andreas Grib Fibiger, Orville Wright, Ferdinand Porsche, Ernst Heinkel, John Bardeen, Frank Nelson Doubleday, Sidney Sheldon, Jean Crotti, Henry Roeland Byrd aka Professor Longhair, John McIntire, Huntz Hall, Barbara La Marr, Everard Digby, Betsy Ross, Georges Pire, Ed Herlihy, Coretta Scott King,
Sam "Lightnin'" Hopkins

and Francis Poulenc.

You look like someone scared the sonata out of you.
Happy birthday, anyway.
