Fortune of the Day
Is it just me or does this seem vaguely threatening to you?
I had to laugh when I read this. Aren't there many nicer ways this could have been written without using a word like "confront"?
Why would Opportunity want to confront me? What would this even look like? The Opportunity that I know, especially the unlimited kind, is joined with words like "fabulous" and "incredible". Shouldn't the thought of Unlimited Opportunities bring a smile instead of a furrowed brow?
Oh, I guess if one is given too many Opportunities and, for some crazy reason, one actually has to choose among them, this might cause a bit of discomfort. But what kind of Opportunity brings implied hostility along with it?
Oh, and by the way, I hate confrontation.
Fortune writers really need to be careful with the words they use. They never know who they're going to upset.
Sigh. Sometimes I worry about the stupidest things, though I am laughing again as I type this. Tomorrow, I promise I'll post more cute pictures of my animals. :-)
