Talking Behind the Story
Chatting with people who have strange powers
October 27, 2005
It isn't often you meet someone endowed with the ability to read minds. Ann-Marie Squibb is one of those special people. I sat down with her recently to find out more about her gift.
Maui Time Weekly: Thanks a lot for taking the time to sit down with me.
Ann-Marie Squibb: It's no problem. I'm glad to be here.
Let's get right to it. You can read minds.
Yes I can.
Yes it is.
How did you first find out you had this wonderful gift?
It's strange, because it happened comparatively late in life. I was a teenager when I first started reading people's minds. Maybe it had something to do with hormonal changes caused by my entering puberty, I don't know.
Fascinating. Now normally I don't believe in psychic powers or anything, but the other night when we first met you totally read my mind.
It was nothing.
Says you. I saw you across the bar, standing there in a slinky, black cocktail dress with a neckline plunging nearly to your navel, and walked up to you. And what did you say to me?
I said, "Save your breath, I know exactly what you're going to say." And then you said, "Really? What am I going to say?" And that's when I said, "You're going to ask if you can buy me a drink."
And I was! I so was going to ask if I could buy you a drink. By the way, thanks for wearing that dress again to the interview. But what really amazed me is that later in the evening you read my mind again.
Oh, you mean when I told you, "Stop, I know exactly what you want. You're just trying to get me liquored up so I'll go home and have sex with you."
Yes! I was floored when you said that. You nailed me, right there. I had no idea what to say—here was this woman I'd just met, and you could read my mind. How did you know?
What can I say—I have a gift.
Okay, let's do a test: what am I thinking right now?
You're wondering if I'll go out with you after this interview is over.
