When I was in Ohio, my family went to P.F. Changs. There were over 20 little fortune cookie messages on the table as we were leaving and on an impulse I collected them. Some of them were really lame so I wanted to share the lameness as I'm a very sharing person. Well, that was a month ago and I'm down to 7. But seven is a lucky number. Speaking of lucky numbers, here are the ones offered on each fortune message:
You are a practical person with your feet on the ground
A lifetime friend shall soon be made
A great man never ignores the simplicity of a child
To be mature is to accept imperfections
A new voyage will fill your life with untold memories
As a cure for worry, work is better than whiskey
Don't be afraid of fear
So, indeed, how wonderful. Then, on the back we can learn Chinese!!!! But only five of the fortunes help us with that:
okay, and one of them was a repeat. There, I finally can throw these things away!
I just found three more.
Be careful to not overspend.
Apply your imaginations to any problem that arises.
And finally and fittingly,
Accept your independence and use it wisely.
I do and I will. Happy 4th of July, that day we launched out on our own.
