In Case of Fire – NaPoWriMo 2016 – Day 13 – take fortune cookies


In Case of Fire

Love if free. Lust will cost you everything you have.
A clear conscience is always a sign of a bad memory.
In case of fire, keep calm, pay bill and run.
The only thing constant is change.
Failure is the mother of all success.
I have a dream… Time to go to bed.

A merry heart does good like medicine
Do not be covered in sadness or be fooled
in happiness, they both must exist.
Be tactful; overlook your own opportunity.
Ladybirds will be seen as good omen.
Love can turn cottage into a golden palace.
Keep it simple. The more you say,
the less people remember.

Not all closed eye is sleeping nor open eye is seeing.
I think you ate your fortune while you were eating
your cookie. The best prophet of the future is the past.
Good news from afar may bring you a welcome visitor.
It’s a good thing that life is not as serious as it seems
to the waiter. Remember the fate of the early worm.
Bend the rod while it is still hot. The most important
thing in communication is to hear what isn’t being said.

Never upset the driver of the car you’re in; they are
the master of your destiny until you get home. Accept
that some days you’re the pigeon and some days you’re
the statue. The early bird gets the worm but the second
mouse gets the cheese. It never pays to kick a skunk.
All your fingers can’t be of the same length.

Sometimes you just need to lay on the floor.
Cookie say: you crack me up.
I have a dream… Time to go to bed.
