Could It Be True?

After visiting the bank for the millionth time in the last two weeks (No that isn't an exaggeration or hyperbole. It actually was a million times.) I went to get some dinner.

The place I went to is this cute place where you pick out your veggies and sauce, then they grill it on this hot stone thing. I'm undecided on whether I love this place or hate it.

I love it because it is great food and a quirky atmosphere. Usually it's pretty mellow in there and it's a relaxing place to me. They also give you these weird rice wrap things that look like napkins and they make me laugh.

I hate it because I'm doing part of their job for them by picking out my veggies and sauce for myself. Oh yeah, and they make you guess the price price of your food based on weight. If you guess right, you get your meal for free. I don't like this. I feel like I am being put on the spot and get really uncomfortable. Like they are going to stun gun me if I guess wrong.

Anyways, after the meal they give you hot towels and a fortune cookie. I've always been skeptical when it comes to fortune tellers, tarot readers and palm people. But for some reason, I love fortune cookies. There's something about them. Maybe it's because they are just fun. A moment of fun wrapped in a cookie.

A lot has been going on in my life. A lot of freakin' change, including a very big pending purchase and a drastic upheaval of all things Tyson. I'm not complaining. This is how life rolls. One day everything is one way and the next, just like magic, it's different.

Back to the fortune cookie. Today, my fortune cookie made me laugh at the irony of the whole thing. Here it is:

I tell you, I can't even write crap this brilliant.

((sigh))

Counting your money can be an enjoyable experience I've found :-)

I adore fortune cookies ;) My favorite said 'you shall go far, but be sure to come back'!!

If anyone can roll with the changes it's you, my dear, flexible and resilient!!

I love Woks. It is just fun to watch them cook on them.

At the very beginning of my last semester of college I got a fortune cookie which read "As long as you don't sign up for anything new, you'll be fine."
I couldn't decide if the classes I'd signed up for the day before counted as new or if the counting started when I got the cookie.

Damn, you actually got a fortune from your cookie? That never happens to me anymore-- they're all generic 'facts' that aren't fortunes at all.

Haha, well you sure must have made an important purchase. I've never gone to the bank a million times a day when calling or going online will do. But then again, I work at a bank. So I don't have to.

And I could definitely see why you wouldn't like the place-- although I would. I'm really good at guessing things like that. At my high school orientation all the students took a try at guessing how much this humongous wooden carving of a viking (our mascot) was and I was the closest within like, three pounds. I won a sweatshirt. :D
