Lazy Fortune Writer
Went to go eat at Firebowl with my friend Chad and we both get our Fortune Cookies at the end of the meal. His reads: "It's not what your fortune cookie can do for you, but what you can do for your fortune cookie!" Let's stop just for a moment and think about this. Not cool at all. I mean, you eat this meal of Pad Thai and you anticipate breaking the cookie open wondering if it will say something to completely inspire you...AND THEN, it reads like the John F. Kennedy Inaugural speech in 1961 but with switching out the word FORTUNE COOKIE for COUNTRY. Seriously? Someone needs to investigate and get fired. I mean, if the person was going to go this far to make this a 'fortune', he/she should have taken it all the way...."ask not what your fortune cookie will do for you, but what together we can do for the fortune cookie." Don't leave the JFK speech hanging friend!!! At least then it would have given me reason to laugh really hard, but this was not fortune, this was someone lazy on the job. It is too much to ask for some substance when you unravel this tiny piece of paper?
On the flip side, my fortune was right on track (I just felt the need to empathize for Chad):
That's right, 2008 is all about this.....if you have been reading this blog, you are up on it all. I believe success is measured differently by everyone so I don't go by the world's definition. Here's mine: If you love what you are doing, then you are successful! Giddy up!!!
