what is the deal with these things? are they fortune cookies or riddles?
today the cookie said
"opportunities surround you if you know where to look"
not too bad... but sometimes...
like i got one that said "it is a nice day today" and it was raining!!!
(to continue this..)
some of the fortunes might as well just say
"you have everything you want, as long as you want nothing"
i mean... come one... at least make it be something optimistic

I don't think anyone can figure out what to do with this thread.

While we're onto observations, what's the deal with ridiculously soft toilet paper? It comes apart just when you need it the most. I mean, c'mon!

Well I'm going to skip over MEL-DC Diver's observation and get back to the fortune cookies.

Many years ago I was taught to add the phase "in bed" to each fortune. It has a tendency to place a new spin on the items.

"opportunities surround you if you know where to look in bed" -- can really get you thinking.

or

"It is a nice day today in bed" -- that can work on a rainy day, actually it might be better on a rainy day.

I actually keep these things.

I have....

You should be able to undertake and complete anything.

Use your abilities at this time to stay focused on your goal. You will succeed.

Your skills will accomplish what the force of many can not.

and drum roll please.

you have an active mind and a keen imagination. Apply your ideas. I think this one is where Illinni_Fan's add-on would be best.

All of the these work with the little add-on, although I would agree that the last one is best.
