One of my silly guilty pleasures is fortune cookies. I don't always think that they're accurate but I love to open them up and read the tiny paper. I even have a box where I keep all of them so I can look back later and laugh at them. Lately there have been a few that have stared at, jaw on the floor, because they've been so unbelievably perfect.
So, last night I took a break from all the cooking I usually do (ha!) and we ordered Chinese. When the food arrived, I opened my fortune first because it's my fortune and I am not known for my patience. It was:
"An unexpected event will soon make your life more exciting."
Hmmm...I can definitely think of a few unexpected things that would make my life MUCH more exciting! Winning the lottery is somewhere near the top of that list...though I'm pretty sure I have to play the lottery before I can win the lottery. Details.
Scotlon's fortune was just as good:
"You will soon be picked for a promotion."
Wouldn't that be great?!? He would love to move up and I've already started dreaming about/spending the extra money in my head.
Because if the fortune cookie says it, it must be true, right?
