Good eat, Bad fortune

I went to a very nice Chinese restaurant a couple nights ago. Roomy, comfortable, good food and good service. At the end they always bring us those Almond cookies that I never liked and fortune cookies. I love fortune cookies, and always try to get everyone elses fortune cookie -- not so much for the fortune, but for the cookie.

Well, I get mine, eat it and then I read my fortune. Ahem, here is what it read:

The smart thing to do is not be your self.

Oooookay. Apparently that self isn't working so good. Did I read this wrong? Am I missing something with 'your self'? Even worse, my new job? Don't really like it. As a matter of fact, I'm back in the job search. Pathetic much? I think it was because I'd been looking for so long I was ready to take anything -- and I did. Mistake #1, even as happy as I was, still a mistake.

I know, it hasn't even been a week, but it only takes a few days to know, you know?

Well, like my mom says 'all you can do is what you can do until you can do something else.'

    Dear Gunngirlia:

    My personal favorites are:

    "When the going gets tough, quit."

    And "Aim Low"

    Seriously, I'm sorry you don't like your job. I'm sure you'll find something better. Maybe a fortune cookie writer. Remember, I'm available as a reference. Which means I'll lie.

    Fear not, Gunngirl. You'll find something better. Your Mom sounds pretty cool...and besides, those fortunes are probably written by some 50 year old, white, HS dropout.

    FYI: Fortune cookies were invented in the U.S.

    Alway remember to add the phrase " bed." to the end of your fortunr. It adds a whole new level of meaning.....
