I am a Gemini, so am I looking for the 3/4’s of my missing self?
Oh really? I found my other half today when I was looking in mirror. He was so handsome. Lol.
Interesting comments from readers… Why can’t people just enjoy the written for their creativity? Love the idea of the other half, glad mine is right next to me!
