Just Vibes, Man

Natalie Grigsonbyline‚ Feb. 19‚ 2013

Last Sunday I decided to go see a psychic for the first time. No, I didnít lose a bet; and no, Iím not having serious doubts about some big future decision. Really, I just wanted to see what it was like. Now Julie the Psychic actually pegged herself as Julie the ďIntuitive.Ē I didnít know what this meant, and when I asked her she gave me a very long and almost poetic answer about the energies of people, the universe, and our connectedness. How weíre all just small, intertwined threads of something much larger that we canít even grasp! But that still didnít answer my question about the word choice.

ďIím a psychic,Ē she finally said grudgingly. And so I felt a little bit more comfortable since I thought I knew what I was getting into. I mean, Iíve seen moviesóI know about the Crystal Ball and the eyes darting around behind closed lids like the medium is dreaming.
