Fortune Cookie Philosophy


Friday nights are somewhat of a loose tradition with my son and I...we rent a movie and order Chinese takeout. And I always look forward to the fortune cookie at the end  of the meal, not so much for the actual cookie but what my "fortune" will be. Call me a sap but I really like some of the positive messages they often contain..."you will soon be wealthy," "love is in your future," "you will live long and healthy" (click here for more).  But when I finished my meal yesterday the fortune I received is the one pictured above. This summer and fall have been some of the busiest weeks I've worked in years (for various reasons)...umm, I don't need a fortune cookie scribe to tell me how hard I work. With the money and love quotes they seem to be off the mark a bit...at least with this one they were accurate. Go figure.
