Psychic Sally Knows Why People Choose to Live Next Door to Businesses

I went to a psychic the other day.

Not because I happen to believe that there are people who can see into the future or can tell you the names of your dead childhood pets simply by looking at the palm of your hand. Because I don't. I didn't go to Psychic Sally (I swear, that's her name) because I wanted to know if I'd been, in a past life, a girl or a china shop owner, which is the only possible explanation for my obsessive dishware collecting.

I went to this psychic to ask her to clarify something that has troubled me since I was little, something that no one has ever been able to adequately explain. Why, I've long wanted to know, do people live in houses that are oddly situated close to things no one should live next door to?

This question has haunted me ever since the '60s, when a row of houses near the grade school I attended was leveled to make room for a strip mall. All but one of the houses, that is. The southernmost end of the mall butted up against the remaining house, its bathroom window looking directly onto a cinderblock wall no more than a foot away.

I was captivated. Who lived there, and what was it like to live inches away from a Kwik Kopy? Did the lady of the house do her marketing at the deli at the far end of the mall? I would have, even if it meant never again eating Cap'n Crunch, which I was certain a deli wouldn't stock. Did the kids who lived in the house hang out at the appliance store two doors down from their front porch? The possibilities were endless and a heck of a lot more exciting than living next door to John and Lucille Brown, the nice old people who were my neighbors at the time.

I started noticing this strange trend all over Phoenix. The dentist office where I had my teeth capped in 1969 is still standing, but sometime in the '80s, an apartment complex got wrapped all around it. I think that's weird. Convenient for anyone who lives in that apartment complex and happens to be obsessive about dental hygiene, but still weird. After high school, I managed a record store that had once been a house and that stood next door to the only remaining house on the block, in which a little boy who was obsessed with Diana Ross lived. I asked him once what it was like to live next door to a record shop, but he only shrugged and said, "It would be better if you carried more Supremes albums."

I knew Psychic Sally would know why people live next door to businesses and retail shops not because she has special insights into the world, but because she works out of a house that rests snugly in the parking lot of a gigantic condominium complex at Colter Street and State Route 51. The Biltmore Square Condominiums, built in 2003, is my favorite example of this close-proximity thing. For years I've been eyeing the little ranch house, the only one left from an older subdivision, beside and behind which towers this gigantic complex. The house has no backyard; it's literally surrounded on all sides by the macadam parking lot of the condos that practically embrace it. One drives past the kitchen window and carport of the house as one enters the complex's parking lot, which bumps right up against the house's desert landscaping. Every time I drive by this impossible living situation, I become dizzy with confusion.

I tried calling Biltmore Square, but I got nowhere. A very pleasant property manager named Wendy just kept repeating, "The psychic next door is not at all affiliated with us. We do not offer psychic readings as an amenity of our rental community."

So when I recently noticed a neon sign in the window flashing the words "Psychic Readings," I saw my chance to finally get to the bottom of why in the world people live next to weird stuff. I booked an appointment with Sally, who ushered me past her super-tidy living room and into a bedroom fitted out with a big desk and framed images of Christ and Barack Obama.

We sat down on either side of the desk and Sally asked what I do for a living. "Shouldn't you know that already?" I asked. "You're a psychic." She rolled her eyes, took my hand, and squinted into my palm for a while.

"You have a woman in your life with cancer," she finally said, and I thought, Okay, but who doesn't? I can name six! But instead of saying that, I asked, "Is there anything in my hand about dishes?"

"No," Sally replied, "But I can tell you you're going to meet someone named Jonathan in March. Also, there's a woman who loves you and you're keeping her at a distance," to which I replied, "Well, don't tell my husband!" And then I held up my other hand to show her the ring Todd gave me 12 years ago. She didn't laugh.

My name is Jackie Ryan from USA. I am here to let you know that what people say about getting back their ex may seem impossible, but with what you believe, nothing is impossible. I made a promise to Dr. Dele and to myself that when he restores my marriage, I would testify and tell the world hoping that I would someday be able to bring some kind of help for a hurting wife, husband, girlfriend or boyfriend who would have been going through what I once was. 


We had some in-law issues which contributed greatly to our demise before I contacted Dr. Dele from posts I read on a blog. Dr. Dele showed up and calmed every storm, he brought peace to everybody. We are all happy and eat together in the same table today. God bless you Dr. Dele. Contact him immediately for help via dr.delespiritualtemple@gmail.com

Luisa here, I never believed in love spell or magic powers because I thought all of them was scams and fake until I experienced a very serious breakup with my fiance. It was like my whole life crashed. A very close friend of mine told me how she was helped by a spell caster dr.sanu once in her marriage, she was so close to me that she could not just say something that wasn't true. She gave me the man's  phone number and address. I contacted him immediately and told him everything that had happened, he told me he was going to help me. I was so anxious about everything because I never believed it was going to work but after 48 hours my whole life changed as my fiance came back begging for forgiveness and for us to be back together. It was as if dr. sanu spell helped him so see how much I loved and needed him in my life. Our relationship is so filled with much joy and happiness all thanks to my friend and the glorious work of dr. sanu. If you are out there and you can find this testimony do not hesitate to contact him, his e-mail address is ; dr.sanuspiritualtemple@gmail.com

My Name is Mary from USA. I never believed in love Spells until I met this special spell caster called dr sanu. The man I loved so much and was engaged to left me 4 months to our weeding ceremony and my whole world torn apart. We have been together for 5 years and I really love him so much, he left me for another woman because we had misunderstandings. When I called him he never picked up my calls and he didn't want to see me around him anymore, he kept avoiding me. Fortunately for me, I kept on seeing different people giving testimonies about this powerful spell caster dr sanu. I was really scared but after contacting dr sanu he calmed me down and gave me confidence that I was going to get my man back and truly it took only 2 days for me to see my fiance and he knelt down before everyone around me that he was sorry and want me back that he now realized he made the biggest mistake of his life living me.
 It was a very wonderful moment for me as we now want to continue with our wedding plans. I feel like the happiest woman on earth right now. I promised to tell lots of people out there having troubles about dr sanu, his private e-mail is
dr.sanuspiritualtemple@gmail.com....

"Because they're crazy." What's the matter, Robert? You went looking for crazy but couldn't find it. Couldn't figure out a snappier way to end the story? Her reply sounded quite sane to me.
