Lucas ate a fortune cookie today. His fortune read as follows: "You will embark on an exciting business venture."
I asked Lucas what that meant, he said very deliberately, "I-T-O-A". Thinking this would be a lucrative stock tip, I quickly jumped on the computer and looked it up as a ticker symbol, but found no results.
I searched Google. The first legitimate business I found was the Irish Tour Operators Association (www.itoa.ireland.com). So Lucas is hinting at a trip to Ireland or maybe he will one day be an employee of the ITOA.
I asked him what ITOA meant. He pointed to the fortune and said, "See, it says 'I love you'". Then he put the fortune in his mouth and started chewing on it.
