I like to think of myself as a fairly rational person; for instance, I don’t gamble because I know the odds are stacked against me. Why, then, do I insist on breaking open and reading every fortune cookie that comes my way as if, somehow, it will help me divine my future? How foolishly irrational is that?
I smirk at people who read their horroscopes from the daily paper or, worse, go to have “readings” done (perhaps I’m dismissive because I’m a Taurus?) and yet I fall upon the little bits of paper in fortune cookies as if they will provide real guidance.
Is there any hope for me?
