In general, I'd consider myself a healthy skeptic. I question random statistics that people casually throw around and I frequently ask people for their sources when they tell me sketchy stories or facts. I'm a bit infamous for it at my house, actually.
So you can imagine that things like horoscopes and fortune cookies get a pretty good chuckle out of me, but I'm starting to wonder. I had a fortune cookie at the end of March that told me "look to the next month for some pleasant surprises." Since it was such an optimistic little thing, I kept it, feeling a little foolish.
In any case, although I'm not sure how much of it I can credit to the fortune, I have to say, there have been some very pleasant surprises in the course of the last month. Very pleasant. I think I may be living the plot of a Jane Austen book. And it's a good thing I have my passport in order, because my next opportunity to use it popped up out of nowhere and will be approaching in just over a month.
And to think that fortune cookie called it before I had any idea. So much for my skepticism.
