I ask you. Is it too much to expect that something labelled “fortune cookie” should have a fortune within?
Instead, to the very last cookie, they are in reality purveyors of platitudes.
But that’s not the point.
I am tempted to start my own line of true fortune cookies… with some less than consoling prognostications. Several favorites come to mind.
I think they would be both refreshing and a hit.
And to the author of the aforementioned platitude, virtue should be its own reward and, if I were you, I should start paying attention to your LAD. Not good.
Coffee running low? Why not refresh your supply now with not just any old coffee, but Mystic Monk Coffee? That’s right… Monks roast every bean themselves and send it to your door. When you buy it you annoy liberals, help the men build their new monastery in Wyoming, and help Fr. Z as well.
Need a grinder? They have one.
Want to have coffee seen automatically each month? They do that.
Want TEA instead? They’ve got that too.
Try a coffee sample pack and let those platitudes just roll off your back like the tears we have shed over the lame-duck translation’s back all these many years.
okay… that image wasn’t too successful…
Mystic Monk Coffee!
