I’ll Take It Where I Can Get It, Thanks

So last night. On the way home. At the Chinese restaurant at the shopping centre near my house, I opened a R3.80* fortune cookie and it told me: “your heart’s yearnings will come true.

Reassurance. A small sliver of hope. Despite it being just a fortune cookie and therefore totally random and therefore totally unreliable, that cookie did just what it was supposed to do – it served as a little reminder that one day I will have what I want. One day I’ll get what will make my heart happy. And that makes all of it okay.

Hope. I’ll take it where I can get it, thanks.

*Everything in that restaurant seemed to be based on the same pricing system. ie: variations of 3,8. As in R3,80, R38,00 and R38,80. Just one of those things that caught my eye.

    It’s the small things in life, like a fortune cookie, which seems to give one hope for the future. Hoping that fortune comes true for you

    Don’t be coy. What IS your heart yearning for? A new aorta? A refurbished left ventricle? Don’t leave us hanging?
