Laura & I get our 'Turkish coffee grounds' read. Deniz told me to watch out for my kidney, my urinary tract, that a woman I may or may not know is always watching over me and is a fierce protector, and that I would find a new boyfriend. Funny, huh?! She told Laura she will have twins & they run in her family. Hah!!!
