Tarot on the BART

Imagine if you will a man riding the BART to work this morning. He’s reading a book like usual. From his right he hears the sound of cards being shuffled over and over: frip, schump, friiiiiip. He looks over and there is a lady shuffling tarot cards over and over. She shuffles the deck about ten times in a row, very loudly he thinks, and then lays the cards out. When she’s done “reading” the cards she goes back to the shuffling routine. The man thinks to himself as he’s trying to read “Golly that’s annoying!”
