Fortune Cookie Wisdom

I had lunch at my favorite oriental restaurant with my sister, Ruthy, and her husband, Jerry. After we’d enjoyed way too much of the good food, we each chose which fortune cookie we wanted from a small tray the server had placed on our table. This is serious decision-making.

There’s just three cookies on the plate. I take my time. Any, minnie, minie, moe… I reached for the one on the farthest side of the small tray. After making the hard decision of which one, we then take turns reading our fortunes out loud.

When I read mine, my lunch companions laughed and accused me of making it up. I had to show it to prove I hadn’t fudged on it!

Have you ever had anything more scientific than this to confirm your decision to be a writer? I loved it!!
