“I want to know more about you!”

I opened a fortune cookie and it promised me a better day if I would just repeat the words in the title at least five times today.  I immediately repeated, “I want to know more about you” five times.  But then I thought that the idea was probably to use this phrase in conversation with five people during the day.  

I tried it with my daughter.  She laughed and said I was creeping her out.  

Despite my failed efforts I think that it is a good idea to express interest in people we know or meet every day and focus a little less on ourselves.  So did my cookie tell my fortune or did I just get a little paper with life advice? Yikes!! Am I looking inside fortune cookies to find my life’s direction?

Hmmm.  Maybe my next fortune cookie will say, “Take good advice wherever you find it!”
