Monday’s team meeting came with catered chinese lunch.  Late in the afternoon, I took the bag of fortune cookies up to reception and put them in the empty candy basket.  I took one yesterday and one today.

Yesterday’s cookie fortune:

Your day will be somewhat dictated by authority.

Today’s cookie fortune:

Don’t let the past and useless details choke your existence.

Man, that’s a bad trip – you pretty much never want the word “choke” on anything you get from a cookie.  I continue to cling to the belief that if you don’t eat the cookie, its fortune does not apply to you.

UPDATE: Wednesday’s cookies (I went double or nothing)

Now is a great time to broaden your scope of influence.

and, more ominously but less grammatically,

The change you started already have far-feaching effects.  Be ready.
