A young man went to a fortune teller. Gazing into her crystal
ball, the old lady asked, ?What is your dream, young man? What do you want to do
with your life??
?I want to become a great writer.
"How do you define great?? she asked.
?I want to write things that the whole world will read, things that people will
react to on a truly emotional level, things that will make them scream, cry,
wail, howl in pain,
desperation and anger.
?The fortune teller reassured him, ?It will be so.?
He now works for Microsoft, writing error messages.
