Sunday Confessional X

I got this fortune at a Chinese restaurant this week:

fortune cookie: "Someone is interested in you. Keep your eyes open."

My immediate reaction was to wonder if the ladies from the preschool down the street were about to encourage me to get Boobaby to attend next year. Which would be totally flattering and do you think they even notice me and omigod one of them saw me today give Boo a hot dog and what if they’re vegetarians and I bet they hate me…

A few minutes later it dawned on me that the fortune-writer probably had a different kind of “interest” in mind. I’d missed it entirely.

I’m getting oooold.
