Day 21 Fortune Cookies

Who Thinks These Things Up Anyway?

You will die at 40. Oh, wait; you're 60? Nevermind.

Last week will not be the same as today.

How can you not notice? Take notice. Give notice. Put the world on notice.

Soon you will make a long journey, though you will need to shift 
your perspective to undertand it as such.

Someone kind and good is following you.

No one is following you.

The man at the post office who smiled at you really meant well.

You don't need as much money as you think you do.

No one book has the answer, even in the back.

Write your own damn book.

Think twice about this.

Yes, of course you should.

Your lucky number is your age divided by half your height multiplied
by the number you find most sexy.

Maybe you should eat a little something. Chocolate perhaps?
