Retarded Fortune Cookies

I got two of world's worst fortune cookies today (don't ask why I took two).

Here's what they said, verbatim.

Your talents will be recognized and suitable rewarded.

You are very expressive and positive in words, ct and feeling.

I have many problems with these fortunes. Let me list them.

The First Fortune:
-The grammar fluke aggravates me strongly.

The Second Fortune:
-It's not even a fortune
-What is "ct?"
-What's with the "in words" add-on?! What's that supposed to mean?

Everyone else at the table got slightly normal fortunes, but no, I had to get the retarded fortune cookies.

Oh, by the way, I think I have swine flu. Can't be sure yet.

Also, I just finished Evermore by Alyson Noël. Yeah...I'm not so in love with it, and it doesn't entice me to read any of her other books. However, I will read the next in the series, Blue Moon. Not even because I'm curious or interested, though. No, Ms. Noël couldn't even do that. I care not for any of the characters or what becames of them. I didn't guess anything about anything, because Alyson could not make me care. At all. I'm going to read the second book to give her another chance to get my attention, to give us a better climax, a better plot, more believable characters, and get us to feel with the characters. Yeah, so overall, the book wasn't very good. It also reminded me WAY too much of Twilight, which then just made it seem unoriginal.

Fortune cookies can be confusing sometimes, eh?

I hope you don't have Swine Flu!

I'm gonna check out Evermore, just to see if I like it.

Have a nice day :)!

Was it really necessary to use the word retarded? I'm giving you the
benefit of the doubt here but certainly you know that the word
retarded used as slang is extremely hurtful to people living with
special needs. Before I had a child with a disability, I pretty much was like you. I don't know if I used the word but I certainly didn't flinch when I heard it. What's the big deal, right? It is a huge deal to people who have cognitive challenges. They get what you are saying and they understand that you are mocking them, even if it's
unintentional.
Anyway, thank you for hearing me out.
