Humans of Athens: Gypsy

WHO: Gypsy, 38, palm reader

FP: How did you become a palm reader?

G: What do you mean, “become”? I was a palm reader before I was born. It’s in my blood. I can look at someone’s hand, study its curvature and unique print and determine extremely general facts about their lives.

FP: If you could be any kind of animal, what would it be and why?

G: I have always considered myself to be of the reptilian variety, so maybe an iguana or an exotic snake. 

FP: Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

G: Based on my psychic predictions, mankind will be extinct in 10 years, which suits me just fine. Infrastructure and government have begun to collapse, and soon disease will claim humanity. Hey, is that a squirrel?
