Fortunes and an end

Like everyone with a desk, I keep odds and ends on it. (don't be shy, admit you to keep stray things, irrelevant things on your desk) One of those things is fortunes.

No, I don't keep horoscopes, or a book of them on my desk, but fortunes from fortune cookies. Is there a good reason? Not especially, though the fact that they are generally positive and about the person who receives them makes them nice.

Yes, it's silly, but hey, at the end of this post, I'll tell you a way to be sillier with them.

Here's a few of them:

"You will soon receive an unusual gift."

"No challenge is too big for you."

"If you continually give ou will continually have."

"The way to love anything is to realize that it might be lost."

Corny enough for you? Or for some of you, needed words of wisdom. (wink)

So do they help or come true. Heck, who keeps track. I just like the ego boost. :)

But now that I've written this, this is one little secret gone, and one thing I'm planning on putting behind me. No more squirreling away fortunes in the pile(s) on my desk.

And to reward you for reading this, let me tell you how we make these fun.

At the end of each fortune, take on 'in bed.'

Yeah, maybe not original, but we've been doing it as long as my wife and I have been sharing Chinese food.

Another popular fortune ender is 'naked.'

Don't ask my where these come from but I'm sure after you've read your hundredth good but generic fortune, they just come naturally to mind. The enders that is.

With these final words, I now toss these ended fortunes into the waste basket.
So long and may you continually have unusual gifts, where everything you love is no challenge but too big for you and might be lost.

Oh yeah....in bed.

Yours,
Tojosan
