: my daughter has been worried after buying a fortune cookie, could you explain what this means. Beware of a man with a gleam in his eye,it may just be the sun shining through the hole in his head.

The only gleam I know about is romance/lust. As in: you were just a gleam in your father's eye. Meaning your father's interest in your mother that lead to them becoming parents.
