Fortune cookies can be just the worst.
Not to be cryptic, and all.
I’m also finally reading The Picture of Dorian Gray, and I’m feeling about it just the way I felt about this fortune cookie from Pei Wei.
“”Words! Mere words! How terrible they were! How clear, and vivid, and cruel! One could not escape from them. And yet what a subtle magic there was in them! They seemed to be able to give a plastic form to formless things, and to have a music of their own as sweet as that of viol or of lute. Mere words! Was there anything so real as words?”
— Oscar Wilde (The Picture of Dorian Gray)
