At work, a few friends and I go out to eat every other Monday (and a couple other times during the week). Roughly half the time, we go to a Chinese buffet. It's pretty good food, and fun fortune cookies. I, being the type of person I am, always take my fortunes home with me. They get stuck in my wallet and sit there until I go to pull something else out. Then they fall all over the floor.
Fortunes, it seems, want to be used, not just tucked away somewhere.
As I've been going through a rough time of writing lately, I decided that I could kill two birds with one stone. By taping my fortunes down to a piece of paper that will fit into my planner, I can easily refer to them when I need a dose of inspiration. In fact, just reading them while taping them down gave me a few new ideas that I'm excited to write about. Later, I think I will create a page for song lyrics and quotes. I have those scattered around the house too.
