Anyway, there were two fortune cookies. The first indicated that I would succeed in medical research, which was rather nondescript - and a tad odd. Lab rat? Scientist? Ah, well, we'll never know.
The second, however, said "You are exciting and inspirational." Inspirational? Me? Egads, some of you know how I feel about that. Meredith couldn't stop laughing and I told her that must be her fortune cookie, not mine.
As Fr. Z. points out in the link above, fortune cookies are usually filled with platitudes and should not be taken seriously! All the more evidence.
However, this morning I went looking for the fortune cookie message. I found the first one, but not the second. Hopefully it was ripped into tiny pieces and sent where all platitudes belong - in the garbage.
