Cookie Fortunes I keep around

Fortune Cookies are totally cheesy, fake as hell and generally a kind of joke in the grand scheme of things (and sometimes not so grand).

Fortune cookies have been summarized as being “introduced by the Japanese, popularized by the Chinese, but ultimately they are consumed by Americans.” — From Fortune Cookies Wiki Article

Despite all of the history and relevancy of these sometimes delicious and often stale cookies, they can be a lot of fun and sometimes actually apply to the life of the consumer.

Here are a couple fortune cookie fortunes that I keep taped on the inside of my notepad cover:

An important business venture may soon develop for you.

Your golden opportunity is coming shortly.

I have had these previous two for some time and waiting for them to come to fruition. Things are definitely looking up.  Maybe the author figured that everyone gets lucky at least once and the probability that the reader will get lucky after receiving this fortune is pretty good?

Let your social instincts off the leash, and talk to all and sundry.

Well, if you know me from any event in Denver or if you have hung out with me, I don’t have a problem with this one. A little reassurances is always good.

Do you have any fortunes that you keep around? What is it that makes you keep them around?

    I’m with ya Matt. I have a lot of fortune cookie fortunes I keep around. Usually I’ll keep them if they resonate with me or they signify something special like a night out with friends to celebrate etc.

    Although, I have to say by far my favorite was one I got in May, 2006. It said “To be healthy, eat more Chinese food”. What makes this one so special to me, is at the time we were provided lunch at the company I work for and there was a full size paper sack half full of fortune cookies that I reached in and grabbed this cookie out of. The funny thing about all of this? It was 2 days before I left for a 17 day trip to China. =)
