Today's fortune: November 14, 2011

Today's fortune: You display the wonderful traits of charm and courtesy.

Thank you fortune, your kind words mean a lot to me.

See what I did there? I displayed charm and courtesy by accepting a compliment. This is something I've struggled with before, but I'm doing a better job of being charming and courteous, and I'm using those skills to my advantage: charm and courtesy grease the wheels of so many things.

I displayed charm today by laughing off something that could have been viewed as mildly insulting (even though it's pretty damn hilarious). Most of my co-workers are in their early 20s, meaning they're almost a decade younger than me. And those whippersnappers have a lot of fun by bugging me about my advanced age. Today, one of the whippersnappers referred to himself as "a young Matt Kelsey."

And all this time I thought I was a young Matt Kelsey.

I laughed along with everyone else, and I'm still laughing now whenever I think of it.
