Fortune cookies

The kids and I went to Chinese for dinner tonight. I think one of the reasons that they like chineses so much is that they get the fortune cookies. Ady and Jonas now read their own.

Today our fortunes went like this.
Me: Leaders are readers.
Jaden: To be content with little is true happiness. (Obviously written by a woman)
Jonas: Know and believe in yourself, and what others think won't disturb you.

Ady: Anyone can "start", only the tortured will "finish"
(it actually reads Anyone can "start," only the thoroughbred will "finish!")

Ady read hers over and over, but kept saying tortured instead of thoroughbred. After having run a marathon, I think tortured may be just as correct.
