Have You Ever Felt as Though You Were Telepathic?


Joanna Albright
Cookin' Queen, Wild Oats Community Market

"Oh yeah, yeah. During the separation with my partner, his phone was disconnected, and I was intensely thinking about him, and he says he heard his telephone ringing and me leaving a message -- which got him to call me and start the ball rolling again. There's no explanation ... we are all spiritual beings."

Dave Dillman
Pipette Man, Lab-Cal Inc.

"Sociopathic, maybe; telepathic, uh-uh."

Kris Dysert
Scullion, Forest Park Boathouse

"I had one -- it's so retarded, but I had this dream my ex-boyfriend came over and brought me a washing machine and I'm just like, whatever, and then that night the washing machine broke and I was like, damn, I wish he had brought me a new washer ... so maybe it wasn't really telepathic, because I had to go out and buy a new washer."

Tracy Walker
Bi-State Driver

"Me and my guy, we work different jobs, and at the end of the day when I get with him I'll mention what I had planned for the evening, and he'll say, 'You must be on the same wavelength I'm on, 'cause I was thinking the same thing.' We do that so much, it's scary!"

Mike Noll
Ceramic Artist

"I'm too busy talking to God to worry about it."

Frankie Fontana
Double-Naught Spy

"Well, yeah, but it's a manly form of telepathy. Every time I get a beer at the Dome, Marshall Faulk runs another touchdown. Yeah, baby!"
