Fortune Cookies, part two
On my way in to work this morning, I passed the “gate keeper” and procurer of dental cavities, aka the vending machine. I noticed another package of Milano cookies holding on to their metallic coil for dear life, as though a dangling rock climber a few chalky phalanges away from plummeting to his death. It appears the machine had the upper hand once again (apparently someone’s arch nemesis), and triumphed in the latest duel for these much desired treats. I gave the mechanical beast a few forceful shoves (do not try this at home), and viola’, a perfect accompaniment to some coffee on this chilly morning. I walked off with smile. It seems the New Year has brought a change in fortune after all. Amateurs.
