Well, Cookie, I’m Confused

What does that MEAN??

“Every action has a counter action. Just if you can see it or not.”

Does every action have a counter action only if I can see it or not? But isn’t that illogical? Doesn’t the second sentence automatically cancel itself out?? I’m either going to see it or I’m not. Either way the first sentence remains unaffected. So, what’s the point of your second sentence? Why did you say that? What do you mean?

And what kind of a fortune is that anyway?? You are a FORTUNE cookie! Not a Natural Law cookie. You might as well tell me, “What goes up must come down. Just if you can see it or not.” Or, if you don’t see it, it might come down and strike you in the head.

So, not only did you confuse me, you GYPPED me! You could have said, “Your actions will bring you happy counter actions,” or “What goes up must come down. But don’t worry. You won’t be under it when it does.” Nope. You left me fortuneless. Some cookie you are.
