Words of Wisdom last night from a ten year old after cracking open her fortune cookie: “Dad, what does this mean?” Her fortune read: There is no rose without a thorn.
I told her: “You take the good with the bad.” She said, “Huh?”
I then said, “Every cloud has a silver lining.” She said, “What?”
I said, “Go ask your mother.” I didn’t hear how her mom explained it, but her immediate recognition response was: “Ohhhhh! It’s like ‘Life isn’t all cupcakes and rainbows!’ ”
