Today's fortune cookie: "Always try to play to win."

Why play if you don't play to win?


Sounds super boring to play to lose! :o

Better a sore loser (sometimes I'm one) than a sore winner (hope I'm never one).

Today's fortune cookie: "It's not the time in your life that counts but the life in your time." That's one to remember when it all seems to be going so fast.

Hmmm, are you really that fond of Chinese food? :lol: But that adage is so true. Let's not count the days, but make our days count.
