Fortune cookies

erasmus_gwDecember 31, 2008

Do you have any favorite fortune cookie messages? Do you save yours? I have a few:

Never let what you can't do keep you from doing what you can do.

Never measure a mountain before you climb it. ( I wouldn't take that literally but the idea counts)

Those who slide down banisters are apt to get splinters.

Do you ever get fortunes you really don't like?

I think fortune cookies can be a good reminder.

"Never let what you can't do keep you from doing what you can do." I cant walk or stand on two legs. It took me a hour and a half to do the dishes. Using my walker and the desk chair with wheels, I finally cleaned the dishes and counter tops. I gave the guys a good laugh and a surprise!

I dont think I have ever read a negative fortune cookie. It will be interesting to see if anyone has?

Donny, I hear you about the mountain looking huge. I have had some fortunes I don't like and so has my daughter. We tend to go out to Chinese restaurants together and always enjoy the fortunes, except for the type that say something like, " You need to think more and talk less". You haven't seen one of those yet?
