I Hate Fortune Cookies!

I don't know why I do it. I don't know why I buy them. I thought it would be fun, seeing that it is Chinese New Year this weekend and that we are at the beginning of something new, I purchased a box of Kong Foo Sing's Fortune Cookies. Well it wasn't fun. To me a nice fortune gives me a hint of something cool to come, something uplifting. If I had wanted sage advise I would have gone to my dad. Look at what Kong Foo Sing had for Darren and I.

Mine and Darren's
Thinking that maybe the whole box was just filled with sobering advice, I gave the boys one each.

Leith's and Kian's
Not so, the box had singled Darren and I out! Leith's and Kian's are the kind of fortunes one can smile and forget about, but Darren's and mine have stuck with us - haunt our every shopping trip, keep us awake at night wondering how we are going to make ends meet. For those of you who know Darren and I, you will know how bad we are with money, what useless future planners we are and how sobering these fortunes must have been.
