  • I opened a fortune cookie recently. It read "never does nature say one thing and wisdom another."

    I was impressed by it.

    There's a girl. She's my friend and I want her to be for a long time. I resisted pursuing anything more than friendship because I didn't want to jeopardize what we already had.

    She was sitting across from me when I read the cookie's insides. I took the universe's sign and kissed her. She kissed me back.

    Thanks, universe. *sarcasm*

    Greatest folly = falling in love with your friends
