That's unfortunate... [Aug. 4th, 2006|07:27 am]
[mood |awakeawake]
[music |Summertime - Billy Holiday]

In 1929 at the age of forty-nine dance revolutionary Isadora Duncan was strangled to death by her own scarf when it became entangled in the rear wheel of a Bugati sports car. She was not driving, she was being chaufferued by a car salesman with whom she had become illicitly involved.


And a crazy scary dog!

That death is just random and stupid enough that it makes me think I might have been that woman in a former life. It would explain both my deadly fear of scarves and of 1920's era roadsters. Plus, I've always expected to die in some elaborately strange and unpredictable way, like being electrocuted while an alligator eats me or spontaneously combusting in a swimming pool.

You don't really have those fears, do you? *blink*

No, I was just kidding. I figure that if you were the reincarnation of a woman who got strangled by her own scarf in a luxury vehicle, it would stand to reason you would be afraid of those things.

I only suffer from mild claustrophobia.

But I do feel a firm conviction that if reincarnation exists, my former selves probably died in freakish ways like that. I'm not sure why, really, but there it is.
