Last night we had Chinese food. Naturally it came with fortune cookies. My three year old daughter’s fortune said “When you squeeze an orange, orange juice comes out Ã¢â‚¬â€ because that’s what’s inside.”
Today she had another fortune cookie (left over). I wasn’t there, so here’s my wife’s version of what happened:
[My three year old daughter] is eating another fortune cookie, she made me read it for her:
“The longest journey is the journey inwards.”
She said, “Journey in worms?” looking concerned.
“Journey inwards,” I repeated.
“Journey in words?” she asked.
“Inwards. It means inside.”
“Worms inside me?” she asked, shocked.
“No, a journey inside you.”
“The worms journey inside me?”
“Honey, it’s not about worms. There are no worms inside you. It’s about thinking about who you are.”
“OH, I’m <her name>.”
