So, we went to a fancy-dancy wedding this past Saturday, and in the program, there was a list of dates corresponding to a list of trees, and by finding your birthday you found what kind of tree you are, and therefore, what kind of person you are. Most trees corresponded with a week's worth of dates, but of course, because I'm very special, September 23 has its own tree. Here's what it said:
Olive Tree, The Wisdom
Loves sun, warmth and kind feelings, reasonable, balanced, avoids aggression and violence, tolerant, cheerful, calm, well-developed sense of justice, sensitive, empathic, free of jealousy, loves to read and the company of sophisticated people.
So, let's break it down:
Loves sun, warmth and kind feelings: EMPHATICALLY yes. So much. I'm so sad summer is over. Also, who doesn't love kind feelings?
Reasonable/balanced: I try to be. This is not always true, however.
Avoids aggression and violence: This is true. My ass kicking days are over. (This is the part where I pretend I once had ass kicking days.)
Tolerant: Mostly, except for ignorant douchebags.
Cheerful: I would say snarky rather than cheerful.
Calm: I can't even pretend this is true.
Well-developed sense of justice: Sure, I like when the bad guy gets what's coming to him. Or her.
Sensitive: Only when I haven't had enough sleep. Which is most of the time.
Empathic: I try to be. I think so.
Free of jealousy: I wish. But no.
Loves to read: Ha! This couldn't be more true. All of my birthday presents featured books. I'm a huge nerd!
Loves the company of sophisticated people: If those people make fart jokes, yes, I do love sophisticated people.
