Fortune smiles on those who -- clean?

"Mom, the computer sounds different."
"Maybe because the speakers are no longer muffled by piles of papers."

Yes, we cleaned the clutter. I pulled out piles and piles of papers, sorted them into piles for each of us, and then put away all of mine. Husband found the right places for all of his. Amigo's Camp Awards went up to his room, and La Petite had a couple of items to file, too. Most of the clutter pile was mine or Husband's. Why do we keep all this, and why was it randomly piled behind the desktop computer? No, don't answer that. I'm sure there's no valid response.

In the pile I found several fortunes from fortune cookies. Again, why did I keep these? For future blog post, of course! What other reason could there be?

To Decide Not to Decide is Often a Very Wise Decision.
Oh, just what I need - an excuse to be more indecisive!

Others look up to you.
Well, I'm a short person, so it can't mean height.

An unexpected event will bring you riches.
I remember this cookie: I taped the fortune to my computer monitor at school because it turned up the day I found out my grant had been approved.

People say you have a sharp sense and superb intellect.
Do they? I'd like to think they're right. But then again, why am I sitting around watching baseball and writing about fortune cookies? Not the most intellectual of pursuits.

Ignorance never settles a question.
It doesn't? Why not?

The star of riches is shining upon you.
See above. This was also taped to my monitor at school. If I'm really taking the Cookie thing seriously, it might mean we're in for more grants. Or maybe, just maybe, it means I'll find something worth $$ in the next pile of clutter I'm bound to attack.

Did you ever do that thing where everyone reads their fortune that they get out loud, and has to add the words "in bed" to the end? Sometimes it can be pretty funny.

Only one of those actually sounds like something that should appear in a fortune cookie. The rest are proverbs. What is the deal wiith fortune cookie writers these days?

So do you add the words "in bed" to the end of all your fortune cookie sayings? It really does make them funnier. "Ignorance never settles a question in bed." Darn right.
