My future lies in...apples?

I had my Annaprasana ceremony this weekend--slightly belatedly, as I've been eating solid food for quite some time (it's supposed to mark the introduction to solids, but my mom is a bit slow to get around to things sometimes). The highlight came after the puja, when my destiny was revealed: fruit, money, jewelry, books, and a guitar were laid out in front of me, and whatever I chose would indicate my future preferences.

Apples are shiny! And red! And they roll around nicely, with a slightly unpredictable wobble!

Given extra time, I also played with the books and the guitar before hightailing it over to Mom. No filthy lucre for me (that's what Dad is for!).
