In a shop window along my small city’s main street, there’s a big printed sign embellished with the stylized hand that signifies palmreaders and other soi disant psychic services. The text, unnecessary capitalization and all, reads:

PSYCHIC READINGS
Appointment Only
No Drop-Ins

“No drop-ins”? But… but… shouldn’t they know I’m coming in?
