This past Saturday evening, not unlike many other Saturdays, my family had Chinese for dinner.

And, as everyone knows, once you’ve had Chinese takeout, then you have to have a fortune cookie.

When I opened up my fortune cookie, I found myself looking at (besides the Chinese learning thing; does anybody else think that’s stupid and buy a Chinese grammar book instead?) this thing:

You will have many friends when you need them.

And I just thought, heck! What good is that if I’m not there for them when they need me?!

So, I’m going to try to be there. I know I’m not perfect, but I will do my best.

Anybody else hate unintentionally self-centered thinking like this? Please, let’s commiserate in the comments! 🙂
