“The Soothsayer” / Memorable Fancies #2385

I can’t make mirrors show me my image. I’ve bought several, but none of them have done so, in spite of repeated threats. I went to a soothsayer, those women paid to say something that often turns out to be anything but soothing. I told her that I was afraid I was becoming a vampire; but she said no, you’re not a vampire, just a nonentity. But be grateful, she concluded, taking my silver coins; you’ll never have to look at yourself, your own self. Many will envy you.
