Make Fortune Giving Away Fortunes

The young man, dressed only in shorts, a wide, conical hat and calluses on his feet, is running through the busy city traffic, pulling a two-wheeled cart. He parks the rickshaw in front of a building, grabs a parcel and sprints up two flights of stairs. As he comes through the door towards the reception desk, curious heads pop up from cubicles and a helmeted, delivery boy backs away in awe and respect. The coolie bows deeply and presents the golden-brown, sweet-smelling packet to the receptionist. With some effort, she breaks open the 8 1/2 X 11 fortune cookie revealing a message, "Sweet words will brighten your day," and beneath it, a love letter to Lucille in accounting.

Other deliveries that day were a summons, "Bad luck will befall you in District Court," a folded pizza, "A stranger will satiate you with salami," and a heavy, six foot cookie that enclosed a stripping samurai, "Beware long, unsheathed weapons of nude warriors."

       Tax refund: "Your uncle replies 'You are too generous'."
Package from Ted Kaczynski: "Your day will end with a bang."
Draft notice: "You will soon be in the best shape of your life."

       Okay, okay, I fixed it (not something I usually do). Viola.

       Yes good writing. How'd he get that conical hat on his feet though? Sorry.   

       Two fortune cookies I received consecutively:   

       "Failure is the mother of success."   

       "You are almost there."

       How about "You will either be as snug as a bug in a rug or as smug as a thug on a drug"??
