The Ruark Kids



So, we had Chinese take-out last night, which means fortune cookies!

Here were the fortunes:

  • Thalia: “A chance meeting with someone from the past is in store.”
  • Siena: “There is no secret to success except hard work.”
  • Daddy: “The expert at anything was once a beginner.”
  • Mama: “To lower your stress level, get a cat.”

To which we wondered, Thalia doesn’t have that much of a past, nor that many chances to run into people. And also, sure the stress levels are high, but do we really need another cat?

Siena astutely remarked, “Thalia is too young to eat her cookie [anyone could easily see where those little brain-wheels are headed], so I get to eat hers.”

Afterwards, I expected a better, and more reliable, fortune, would be, “You will soon experience a brief surge of hyperactivity.”
