Why I Now Like Fortune Cookies


For the most part, I think fortune cookies are a complete crock. Masking overgeneralized statements in sweet crunchy shells is pretty slick and deceiving, and I usually toss the little slip of paper away.

But after a recent double entree of orange chicken at Panda Express before a show, I cracked open the fortune cookie and chuckled at the accuracy of the blurb in front of me: “You Love the Thrill of Showmanship.”

I slipped the piece of paper in my wallet and headed to the show with a full belly and a sweet fortune that wasn’t really a fortune but a spot on personality assessment.
