I had the world’s most gut-wrenching fortune cookie.  Normally, that’d be unexceptional as I’d feed it to my dog.  But it contained an amazing fortune “you will stand over your foes on the battlefields of tomorrow”. Sun-Tzu couldn’t come up with that.  And as is common knowledge, the fortune is null and void if the cookie is not finished.  It came down to intestinal fortitude versus triumph over my enemies.  20 minutes later my training for battle began on the can.  I may not make it into work tomorrow.
