I think this collection began a couple/three years ago when we first started enjoying the food of the restaurant called Pho situated in an unmarked section of the Susnet Boulevard strip mall a half block away from us.

I know the coconut half shell is a souvenir we lifted from our room at the Breezes resort on Zanzibar in the summer of 2005, and it sits on top of a heavy iron utility cover we found sometime thereafter sitting on the sidewalk while walking back from breakfast at Millie’s up in the junction area of Silver Lake.

Since then whenever we’ve had meals that involve fortune cookies, we’ve saved the fortunes and stuffed them into the slit in the shell.
