Speaking of simple gifts.

In an age in which fortune cookies are more likely to give lame advice than actual fortunes, my brother recently received what is, without dispute, the greatest fortune of all time. No, seriously. That’s not hyperbole. What did it say?

“God will give you whatever you want.”

Oh my gosh, you guys. It was his fortune! In a fortune cookie! That means it must be true! Now all I have to do is convince my brother that he wants good things for me, and . . . voila! I also get whatever I want! I bet you all wish you knew my brother. Well, I’m not sharing him.

We keep trying to convince him that he should play the numbers on the back of that one. They seem guaranteed to win. If that’s what he wants.
