Writing of quick meals and unplanned dinners, here are a couple of souvenirs from Friday night's Chinese takeaway dinner:
Fortune reads: You have an unusual equipment for success make sure to use it wisely.
Heh. That cracked me up. Seriously? An unusual equipment for success? Hmmm... And, I wonder how on earth I'd ever use it wisely if I get to figure out what it is?
Ah, well... This other one, I like -
Reads: New experiences and new friends will enrich your life.
Not so much a fortune for me but a reminder. New experiences and new friends are things I wish to have and long for. And, right now, I really am enjoying the process of creating these experiences and friendships.
This year has already opened a lot of new relationships for me, both online and off... And, I'm really enjoying it. And I'm very grateful. That's why I know I should continue to be open to all sorts of experiences and people. Not to get used to too many 'same ol', same ol'' stuff.
Anyway, is it just me - or do folks really order fortune cookies because they love their taste? Or, is it just for the sayings and/or experience? I don't know about you, but I do enjoy eating 'em. The 'fortunes' are just funny sayings to me. Something to have fun with and all. But the cookies themselves... mmmmmm... yum!
Hope you're all having a fabulous weekend!
