Yogurt fortune & Pau de Wandelaer

Every morning, I eat a certain brand of yogurt. The yogurt is packaged in a container whose top needs to be removed by hand. When removing this top from the container, I almost always end up tearing its material, so that it comes off unevenly in two or three separate strips instead of one whole circle (the container is cylindrical). But, some mornings, the top allows itself to be detached in a single motion and thus remains perfectly intact. When this occurs, I think to myself: Today will go well.
