Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Sunday, May 02, 2021

While grocery shopping today, I came across a box of fortune cookies. I grabbed them.

When I got home, I ripped open the box, and promptly unwrapped and cracked my first cookie. The fortune within read:

Today brings out the performer and humanitarian in you.

And here’s the photographic proof. For no particular reason, I’ve decided to take a cameraphone picture of each fortune slip that comes out of those cookies, which come out of that box. I aim to do one per day, and assemble the photos on a Flickr set called “The Daily Fortune Cookie Fortune”. I’ll also transcribe the fortune messages there, as well as record them here in a daily blog post. (I just pray that the box doesn’t contain a dreaded empty fortune cookie.)

We’ll see where this leads. I can tell you right off the bat that today’s cookie was, unsurprisingly, not even remotely accurate. Unless you consider sunbathing to be performance art, and helping a cousin locate her lost housekeys to be an act of humanitarianism. A real stretch in both cases.
