sean had these delivered to me yesterday morning while he was still in wyoming. he is too good to me. i never think to do things like that. my idea of helping him out is throwing his clothes in the dryer. and leaving them in there for 3 days until he decides to fold them. or taking his poptarts out of the toaster before they burn too much... or not leaving the gas tank completely empty for him.. or at least leaving one square of toilet paper on the roll for him so he isn't left stranded....
anyway... yesterday was my dad's 50th birthday! happy 50th dad! you still look 30 to me! ;) we went up to Salt Lake and had dinner at one of his favorite places. it is called david's kitchen. it was delicious. we all got fortune cookies after. i was expecting mine to say something awesome like, "you are going to win a million dollars soon." or "stay how you are, you are awesome." or "you are pretty." (my sister got that one once) or "a great suprise is in store for you." but instead i got "to do nothing is to be nothing."
ummm... what? fortunes are supposed to be so cool and awesome aren't they? not a slap in the face. i don't want to hear the truth! i like doing nothing. i don't like setting high expectations for myself. and i don't like when others expect a lot out of me. because then when i don't do them i don't feel so bad. and if i do them? i feel awesome. because it was unexpected. so i guess that makes me nothing. and i am sure i took the fortune way out of context, but whatever.
