Daily NhanSense: Every day, I will blog about something that comes to mind. My goal is to practice writing about my hobbies, my interests, my opinions and so forth.
Day 3’s Topic: Fortunes.
Whenever I get Chinese/Asian food that happens to come with a fortune cookie for dessert, I always like saving the fortunes and stashing them later in this “bowl” I have near my computer desk.
As you can see, I have accumulated quite the mini-collection of random fortunes next to my kitty bank (yes, there is in fact random change inside it.)
I’m totally a dessert guy to boot, so eating the fortune cookie is fun. It’s like, “Oh hey, I just had some really Americanized Asian food with a few pounds of sugar added to the dish, so what’s the harm of a little extra sweetness from this commercialized cookie?”
The typical routine entails cracking open the cookie, reading the fortune, while munching on the cookie as I store the fortune away in my wallet to be dropped off in the “bowl” later.
Rinse and repeat. After like 20 random meals at places like Panda Express or the gazillion Chinese restaurants that serve the same sweet and sour chicken recipe, you end up with as many random fortunes as I have that I can reread whenever to my heart’s content.
Some fortunes are the standard self-esteem boosters that could pertain to anyone.
