"Don't give up the apartment." It was my first of what would eventually add up to 10 yearly appointments with Terry, a psychic who was popular among media types. But, real estate advice was hardly what I wanted for my $150. No, I wanted Terry to tell me what most people go to psychics to hear: that there was love on the horizon.
