    Write A Fortune For A Fortune Cookie

    OK, it seems that lately the "fortunes" that are enclosed in the little fortune cookies are not really "fortunes" at all. More like advice, IMHO.
    _____

    Time to write some of our own. Of course, planning and built environment fortune cookie blurbs would be way cool.

    "You will find true love on Flag Day" -- oh wait, that one's been used.

    Don't have any to offer, but I have dated a couple girls who like to add "--in bed" to the end of the fortune after reading it...
    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone

    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.
