Fortune Cookies and Confirmation

What do you get your niece as a Confirmation gift? I had scoured local Antiques shops for inspiration but decided against the silver items on display. Luckily I found the very thing in an Asian supermarket.

The Chinese dragon head on a spring is certainly a very colourful gift.While I was at it I bought a beautifully decorated tea cup/bowl and a box of fortune cookies.

We went to Deano’s. The aged steak was beautifully cooked and the company convivial. My niece liked her presents and the miscreant joined us from the local bar.

My fortune cookie said words to the effect that you can’t gain wisdom if you’re too busy talking. The others thought that most apt given that I had been running off at the mouth for a bit.
