Fortunate Girl


I got this cookie three years ago - it looks like an expectant clam, a gaping smile, a pocketbook, it tells me all I need to know

You've had this cookie for three years? That sounds a bit scary. Do you keep it in a jar or a cage or what? Is it on display on your fireplace mantle? Does it move around at night? Do you have to feed it?

WOW. That is really cool.

Forgive me if I am being crude, but that fortune cookie reminds me of a female body part. A labia to be exact. The funny thing is before posting this comment, I went to Wikipedia to determine if I was using the correct term for the correct body part and discovered that someone has posted a picture (not an artist's rendering but a photograph) of their...genitalia complete with labels indicating the correct medical term of each part. For some reason, I thought this was very comical. Aren't you glad I shared?

Anyway, I think the fortune ifself is very poignant. Even if you add "in bed" on the end of it (as I often do with my fortunes), the sentiment still rings true.

Mike - the thing about dry things is, well, they are dry. So whereas the cookie is surely stale and unpleasant to the palate, it has held up just fine, as you can see in the photo, which I took yesterday. It sits on a white platter on my marble topped desk. Sure, sometimes it gets a little dusty, and I have to blow the cookie off, that sounds bad, but it is otherwise pristine. Like hard tack, but quainter. I don't feed it, it feeds me.
