Here is something you should know about me. Given the proverbial glass, I lean towards the “half full” as opposed to “half empty” vision – probably no surprise here! Also, I am an only child, so its easy for me to entertain myself. You know how some people add “in bed” to the end of all their fortunes? I use “in Italy” at the end of all of mine, as in “right now there is a new energy pushing you in a new direction – in Italy!” Alternatively, “the possibility of a career change is near – in Italy.” My personal favorite, “a beautiful, smart and loving person will be coming into your life – in Italy! I believe imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so yes, you can do it too! There is this fabulous website called Fortune Cookie Quotes where you can sign up for a weekly fortune http://www.fortunecookiemessage.com/fortune-cookie.php or just open random fortunes whenever you want. I remember once in college when I was in particularly good shape that I opened a “unfortunate fortune” from Chin Chin that said, and I quote, “if you get any fatter, they will have to make a zip code in your name.” This didn’t leave me feeling warm and fuzzy about the original Chinese chicken salad on their menu. But this website is the perfect thing for a girl who only likes to open the cookie to get the fortune and then throws the cookie away because she doesn’t like actual fortune cookies. When all else seems to fail, just smile and love someone in Italy!
