My “Thing” About Card of the Day Draws

I have a thing about “Card of the Day” draws. And by thing I mean a block. I don’t do them. Well that’s not technically true.

That means I may not use formal spread positions and depending on the cards I may not read all that I pull. This time I read them all because according to elemental dignities they exploded each other. Sorta like Fireworks.
