Evening With Friends And Fortunes

JANUSFILES2 . . . ENTRY#0013 . . . OPEN:

A few weeks ago, I had dinner with some friends at 8 China Buffet. This was the first time I had gone to dinner with a group since I started The Janus Files 2. When the end of the meal came, everyone read the fortunes in their fortune cookies.

I tried to collect all of the fortunes afterward. Unfortunately, some of my friends decided to hang on to their fortunes. Those in the group who know about this site were more than happy to let me have their fortunes. So, I think I got about half of the fortunes, which I now present for your entertainment and enjoyment:

"A family reunion in the coming months will be a tremendous success!"
"A great man never ignores the simplicity of a child."
"A smooth long journey! Great Expectations."
"Be Careful! Bees with honey in their mouths, have stings in their tails."
"Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness."
"You are cautious in showing your true self to others."
"You are offered the dream of a lifetime. Say yes!"
"You're transforming yourself into someone who is certain to succeed."

The funny thing is, I'm trying to remember which of these fortunes was mine. At the moment, I can't.
