I Forgot About Zoltar
I had completely forgotten about this photograph I'd taken while we were in Hot Springs, Arkansas. It's Zoltar. He lights up, he moves, he speaks and dispenses a fortune. At least I think he does. The Farmer was walking and was in no mood for electronic fortune tellers which means I didn't get the chance to cross his palm with silver.
I thought it would be cool to have a Zoltar in the house, that way I could consult with him every morning and avoid making any false moves. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that you can indeed purchase a Zoltar. He's got his own website and it appears that the Hot Springs version is the economy model.
I know one thing for sure, if I was consulting Zoltar today he'd say,
"She who helps Farmer mix and shovel ten 80 lb. bags of cement will regret it in the morning.
That Zoltar is one smart dude.
