I love the fortunes that just make you say “Hunh?”

A fortune cookie post seems like a lame way to break the silence on my poor, neglected blog. Seriously, though, the cookie I opened today contained one of my favorite fortunes ever.

The greatest danger could be your
stupidity.

Harsh. They are usually so positive. I wonder if this fortune cookie writer was having a bad day or just decided to shake things up a bit.

Deep faith eliminates fear.

I suppose so. As long as deep faith doesn’t become blind faith…

So I’m guessing they mean something other than getting out of bed in the morning.

Each day, compel yourself to do
something you would rather not do.

There wasn’t a cookie around back today, but I have built up a huge backlog of fortunes to draw upon.

Life is a gift, don’t waste it.

Apparently, January 24 is the “most depressing day of the year.” Yes, really.

The British psychologist that proved this has a mathematical formula and everything, and if math says it’s true, well then…

So what does this have to do with the fortune cookie I opened Monday afternoon? Well, the fortune just seemed so random, and yet, somewhat timely…apropos.

It’s fun being a kid.

You know, it is fun being a kid, and sometimes it’s fun to forget, at least for a fleeting instant, that I am thirty-three years old. Even though there are days that an omnipresent anchor of depression seems to drag behind me, allowing my inner child to come out and play every so often can really make that metaphorical anchor seem considerably easier to bear, even if only for all-too brief, light-hearted moment.

I haven’t had a chance to post these in awhile, so the little slips of paper have been piling up. Today brings an unprecedented quadruple-header.

It is better to be approximately right
than precisely wrong.

It is also better to beg forgiveness than ask permission.

It’s easier to go down a hill than up it
but the view is much better at the top.
Lucky Numbers 47, 33, 21, 42, 5, 16

You know, it’s even easier to not go up or down the hill. Especially, if the view at the bottom is not all that bad.

A new outlook brightens your image
and brings new friends.

Notice that this one is more of a statement, than a prediction.

All the effort you are making will
ultimately pay off.
Lucky Numbers 2, 47, 19, 34, 11, 23

Och, I hope so. Although, it would be nice for a change that the ultimate pay off be a bit more tangible.

Wow, I actually got home from work before 9 PM today. First time in quite a few days. So what did I do with all my extra free time? I took a nap. I’m a wild one.

A rare triple header today…

Nature, time and patience
are the three great healers.

This one had been in one of my pants pockets since last week. It seems rather apropos, considering recent events in my life.

Business is a lot like playing tennis; if
you don’t serve well, you lose.
