Impossible Dreams

I eat chocolate in a pretty regular basis. One of my favorite chocolates to eat is Dove dark chocolate. It’s kind of a signature that they have fortune-cookie-type sayings inside the wrappers of each little chocolate piece, like “Worry wastes wisdom.”

I recently got one that instructed:

If you fall down 7 times, get up 8.

Sounds inspirational, unless you take about 10 seconds to think about it. The falling must precede the getting up. You have to fall before you can rise. So if you fall down 7 times, the most you can climb back up is 7. This confuses me.

Maybe they’re talking about the number on the scale?
