Fortune in a Cookie

Fortune cookies, the kind you get at the end of a Chinese meal,  have never been a big temptation for me.

They are rather bland and way too crunchy.

However, I love pulling out the little rectangular piece of paper on which a fortune is written.

There was a time, in my younger years, when I saved all the fortunes I liked and slipped them into the sides of a bedroom dresser mirror.

The only scary time remembered, pertaining to fortune cookies, is the night I cracked open the cookie and found no fortune at all!  

The one at the top of this post came in the last cookie given when hubs and I went out for an anniversary dinner in March.

I'm with Sandie, I love them. My favorite was about traveling to a foreign land while I was planning my Paris trip!

My last fortune cookie was this past Sunday when I ate at an Asia said that I was going to win big money soon....Maybe I should use the numbers on it in the state lottery?

I don't remember any specific ones. I don't really like the cookie either, almost never eat it, but I love the little fortunes.

I do like the fortune cookies and think they are tasty with the last of the tea that usually comes with the meal. It's fun to read one's "fortune" and to hear what the others at the dining table received. They always spark interesting conversations too.

I have actually eaten very few fortune cookies in my life. They are usually available where Chinese food is served, and we've not been such fans in the past. I do like the fortune you've pictured in this post!

I usually save them, too, but no idea where they all are. Ha! :) My intention is to always paste them into my daily journal, but I'm never able to keep up with a journal. Oh well. Best wishes, Tammy

I like what your fortune cookie says, Susan. That must have been weird opening up one and not getting a message. I've had many fortune cookies, but one I will always remember........your eyes are the windows to your soul.

I really like everything about the fortune cookie; the look, the taste, the fun messages that are inside. They are delightful.

love, ~Sheri
