Good fortune

by Jennifer on March 13, 2010

I reached into the bread basket on the kitchen counter and pulled out one of half a dozen fortune cookies left over from a takeout order a couple of weeks ago. I cracked it open and found this.

At the end of a tough day of trying to stand my ground about some important things, it was just what I needed to hear. And then I cried, ’cause that’s how I’m wired. (Oh, you would have, too.)

I love it when the fortune actually has bearing on your life. I would have cried too.

Yep. I would have bawled too.

Thanks for your kind words elsewhere, my friend. I’m honored . . .

Damn. That gave me a serious shiver.

Once I got a prescient fortune that said “don’t mistake temptation for opportunity.” Do you think I listened? Of course not. Still paying for that mistake.

In other words, Jennifer: don’t be like me.

My fortunes always seem to correctly address what a cynic I am. Hmmmm.

Last week I stumbled on my fortune from my fortune cookie, and thought of you! I shamefully copied your idea, because it was so apropos for where things have been going. check it out on wait4thenews, and hope you’ll come see my at my new blog.
