Last night I met Bea Dazzler and UnScurvyGirl for dinner at PF Chang's. Although there was a ginormous chocolate cake involved, I couldn't partake due to a persistent chocolate allergy and was jonesing for the fortune cookies our socially inept server waited until the very last opportunity to deliver. Finally, I received this not-a-fortune:
"Your happy heart brings joy and peace where there is none."
Bea Dazzler's not-a-fortune is more of a direction:
"Place special emphasis on old friendship."
[Note: file under "to do."]
UnScurvyGirl's not-a-fortune seems like a good one for my blog header, no?
"Every person is the architect of his or her own fortune."
Today I woke up to an email from UnScurvyGirl with this not-a-fortune from the website failblog.org, labeled "advice":
"Only listen to fortune cookie, disregard all other fortune telling units."
What if we always placed special emphasis on our cookie inserts, and on nothing else?
