Today's fortune: June 17, 2011

Today's fortune: You could prosper in the field of entertainment.

Maybe this means I'll be able to star as myself in the "My Daily Fortune" movie! Better luck next time, Brad Pitt.

Aww, don't be so sad, Brad.

Okay, to be more realistic - better luck next time, Jonah Hill.

The interesting thing about this fortune is the wording: "You could prosper in the field of entertainment." Much less certain than some of my fortunes that tell me "You will." And "you could" could be interpreted two different ways:

1. You have the ability to prosper in the field of entertainment, and you will if you want to.

2. You may or may not be able to prosper as an entertainer.

Hmmm. I guess it's yet to be seen. But to help me out, I've asked Jamie to accelerate a requested Christmas gift to my birthday. I want to learn to play the ukelele, and to do so, first I need a ukelele.

Here's my quest: if I can get one by September 15 (or maybe even an early birthday present like, say, next week... hint hint, Jamie), I'll spend my free time practicing with a goal of performing a song in public before this fortune cookie quest comes to an end (i.e., midnight December 31).

At the very least, I'll post a YouTube video. Maybe I can get 43 million hits like this one did:

Postscript: I showed this video to Jamie and she melted into a puddle. I told her, "I could practice all my life and I'll never be as good as this kid." To which she responded, "Or as cute!"
