What the hell do you want from me, o fortune cookie fortune?
I hang on to fortunes from fortune cookies. They are one of the few things I collect - that and wheat pennies. But one of them - "Now is the time to finish up old tasks" - keeps following me around. I found it on the floor, and picked it up so it would not get lost. For some reason it kept moving about my apartment, appearing in strange places - on the kitchen counter, nightstand, tabletop. I tried to think of old tasks that needed finishing, but couldn't come up with anything. For some unknown reason, I put it in my purse. Then it started appearing in even more bizarre places - on the passenger seat of my car, in my cell phone, in files from work.
And then I threw out my back. And I am pretty sure the damn fortune was involved.
So, what the hell do you want from me, o fortune cookie fortune? What needs finishing up? Is it emotional, spiritual, mundane? Do you just want me to finish unpacking? Well, I would, but now I can't bend over. What do you want? Just let me know and I will get right on it.
Unless it's about an old relationship. In which case, I will just tolerate the back pain.
