I just ate all the fortune cookies the friendly Chinese restaurant owner tossed into my take-out bag.  I can't wait until my good fortunes in life start rolling in.  Should be just about any time now.  Boy, is this gonna be great!  

I think I should go ahead and read them, don't you?  Let's get the good stuff started!

 

1)  The life of every woman or man - the heart of it - is pure and holy.

(Gee, that's good news!  Every one of them, huh?  Cool!  Even my lawyer?  Wow!)

 

2)  It is up to you to create your own adventure today!

(I know, that's why I'm reading my fortunes!  I'm getting to it, I'm getting to it!)

 

3)  At 20 years of age the will reigns, at 30 the wit, at 40 the judgment.

(At my age I'm sure it's my lower back.  Or maybe my swollen ankles, I can't decide which.)

 

4)  Reorganization is crucial at this time.

(Crucial, but impossible I'm afraid.  I've tried reorganizing my sock drawer, and now I can't find any of my underwear.  I bought some new ones but I forgot where I left them.  Damn!)

 

5)  Enjoy yourself while you can.

(Or what!?  Is something bad about to happen to me?  Don't I have enough to worry about without all this pressure?  I think I need to lie down now.)

 

6)  Do you see difficulty behind every opportunity, or opportunity behind every difficulty?

(That depends.  Usually my opportunities are so difficult I hardly know what to do with them.  But then my difficulties seem to come at the most inopportune times, so who can tell?)

 

7)  Look ahead or you won't get ahead.

(That's what I thought about my sock drawer and look what it got me - lost underwear!)

 

8)  Let someone know how special they are to you.

(Ooooooo ... I like this fortune!  I think I'll call her up right now!  Sure hope she's home though.  Does leaving a message count?)
