Misdirected Fortune

"You are never bitter, deceptive, or petty."

Heh, heh, heh.
This is the fortune I got from my cookie when I went to lunch with Arthur today. He thinks I picked up the wrong cookie.

Hell, we're all bitter, deceptive and petty at times.

One man's* petty is another man's earth-shattering event.

Or, put another way, one woman's mountain** is another woman's molehill***.

* Kindly forgive the generic use of the word 'man' to mean 'person'. I will balance this out in the next sentence.

** Kindly forgive the juxtaposition of the word 'woman' with the word 'mountain'. It is in no way intended to convey anything about my personal sexual preferences.

*** Ditto.

As long as you don't substitute 'always' for 'never', I think you're OK.

the fortune I got the other day was something like, you're luck is about to change. I just didn't know how to take that. Is my luck good or bad now? Cause depending on the starting point, where i'm headed takes on a whole new meaning, ya know?

Great comment, Dean. Thanks for your PC entry (sorta).

sxkitten: I try very hard not to be bitter, petty, or deceptive, but it often eludes me while I'm concentrating on something else!

Janet: see, you're clearly more analytical than me, because it wouldn't have occurred to me that there could be a downside to that fortune. Good thing you're the teacher!
