One whole fortune cookie on the counter. Hmm, all the kids are in bed. That must mean it is meant for me. Eat cookie.
I like to eat my fortune cookie before reading the fortune. I won’t describe to you my eating of said cookie. I am not a pretty eater. Although, I do eat them more delicately than, say, popcorn. Fortune cookies can have sharp pokey corners if not eaten with care and can result in pain. OK, enough about eating fortune cookies. Read fortune.
“Now is the best time for you to be spontaneous.”
Um, no. Just 30 minutes ago I informed my beloved about my spontaneity at an event I attended earlier in the evening – he was not impressed. His response, “You should have checked with me before you did that.” Before you go thinking, “How can he say that….,” he was right. It involved him and I committed to doing something he would prefer not to do. He will make it work out, because he is sweet and puts up with me. Thank goodness!
So… that fortune sucked, but there is whole bag of broken fortune cookies on top of the fridge and I am kind of enjoying my beer with the cookies. I am sure there has got to be a better fortune in there for me. Grab one handful, eat cookies, drink beer. Read fortune.
“Plan for many pleasures ahead.”
OK, not too bad. I like that. But wait, the last one was a bust. Does that mean this one will be a bust too. Crap. Maybe this fortune cookie thing is a bad idea. Maybe I need some more cookie and beer. Grab another handful, ooh two fortunes this time, eat cookies, drink beer. Read fortune number 1.
“Prepare today for the demands of tomorrow.”
Sigh, really. I am an overachiever. I make a checklist every evening for my children for the next day. If you know me, you understand what I mean – this fortune is just ridiculous for me. Well there is always fortune number 2.
“Wealth and prosperity are in your future.”
Ok, time to stop while I am ahead. Besides, the beer is gone and I have had my fill of cookies, because honestly that was really what this was all about, the beer and the cookies.
