Life As A Fortune Cookie

[fortune from google - who knew how  wise google was?]

The prompt is "Fortune Cookies" from Real Toads

Life is
like a
fortune cookie.

Each day,
you open one.
Sometimes
you get
the tall
dark stranger.

Sometimes
you get
the bill collector.

Sometimes
you get
the rain,
sometimes
the rainbow.

One learns
to take
the bitter
with the
sweet.

  1. I had to laugh at the options: tall dark stranger or bill collector!
    Life can be very bitter-sweet indeed.

  3. Laughing out loud on this one, Sherry!! I would have wished more tall,dark strangers for you than bill collectors, but at least your sense of humour has gotten a great workout over the years...LOL!

  5. Sometimes I question if one ever gets used to 'bitter.' It would be nice to philosophize that one does, and that the bitter is somehow good. But I can't buy it. Bitter is bitter always.
