90s Pop-oscopes

Get the companion 90s Pop-oscope playlist before reading these or they will make no sense. They honestly don’t make sense either way, but it’s better with music.

His sweater is coming undone. Lay down!

Scorpio

How low? I dunno. Are you bored? Self assured? Oh no, I know [a dirty word]! You will find something hard to find. Not sure what I mean? Whatever, “Nevermind.”

—Only kind of reading in the reading room

Howdy Kinda Reading,
