Keep your courage up and it will keep you up.
That’s the fortune I got out of a cookie at lunch today. It’s a curious fortune. It definitely falls into the category of modern day fortunes that don’t actually give you any kind of fortune at all. (“A wise man speaks seldom,” is not a fortune.)
But more than failing to foretell my future, this one just doesn’t make sense. If I stay courageous, I’ll be an insomniac (which, of course, fits with the idea of adding ‘in bed’ at the end of every fortune¹)? Courage increases buoyancy? Makes you happy? Makes you high?
I like some of the possibilities, but I really need some clarification!
¹ Hmm … maybe I should take my cue from Alejna and read this fortune correctly: Keep your courage up and it will keep you up in my pants. Now we might be getting somewhere!
