Fortunes To The Max

JANUSFILES2 . . . ENTRY#0011 . . . OPEN:

I was at Jefferson Mall a week or two after the last time I mentioned getting fortune cookies at Max Orient. I decided to pick up some fortune cookies on this visit, and this time, I decided to splurge a little, and get a dollar's worth.

As I did the last time, once I got home, I promptly forgot about the cookies once I got home. It wasn't until a few days ago that I finally cracked open the cookies.

The cookies were still in the shopping bag that the lady at Max Orient handed me. When I looked inside, I was pleasantly surprised. She had dropped a couple of additional cookies in with my purchase, so I had eight instead of six. Here are the fortunes from this particular batch:

"An influential figure will make mention of you in a positive light."
"Do not let others take advantage of you."
"Don't let others stop you from doing what you know is right."
"Good things come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle."
"You are compassionate and understanding."
"You will be selected for a promotion because of your accomplishments."
"You will spend your old age in comfort and material wealth."
"Your nurturing instincts will expand to include many people."
