Fortune Cookie Medicine


#231/365 Paintings

Some people go to a movie, take prozac or take a nap when they are blue or worried. But I get a large back of fortune cookies and hide them all over the house. Imagine my surprise when under the toothpaste bowl is cookie fortune that says: “You will inherit a large sum of money.” Awesome! And, hidden behind the rabbit bed, “You are admired for your adventurous ways.” Really? Gee, thank you. I needed that today. I picked a few of my favorites from last week when I was extremely worried in Portland about my rabbit’s survival. “You have a flair for adding a fanciful dimension to any story.” Oh good, because a story about hiding fortune cookies from myself is pretty pathetic, so I’m glad I have that.

Thank you fortune cookies, you did me a solid!

    About a dozen years ago I had an app on my desktop that was called ‘Affirmation.’ The icon was a clean-cut guy’s face and when you clicked on him he’d say things like “Way to go!” and “You did it again!” and “You rock, man!” in a very friendly and commanding voice. This seems nicer. It’s certainly prettier. More than the fortunes I’d like to have those colorful guys bringing me news.
