Thursday's thirteen: Fortune cookies

Thursday’s thirteen: Fortune cookies!

I love fortune cookies saying, and I collect them. So while everyone else is doing the Christmas thirteen, I doing fortune cookies. Yay! Which probably shows how screwed up I am.

1) You will hear pleasant news. (Sure.)

2) You can fix it with a little extra energy and positive attitude. (Uh-huh.)

3) (I love this one) You are protected by silent love and friendship near you. (I am? Cool.)

4) You will take a chance on something in the near future. (Hum, maybe I’ll sell a book.)

5) Happy events will take place shortly in your home. (They must mean Christmas.)

6) Your life will be happy and peaceful. (No visitors or in-laws. Maybe I won’t get a call from my mom either.)

7) Be prepared to receive something special. (Yeah, my husband bought a car and I had to figure out how we were going to pay for it.)

8) Tomorrow will be lucky and memorable for you. (That’s good because I usually have only bad luck.)

9) The person that’s good will infallibly become better. For virtue & time are two thing that never stand still. (I have no idea what that means.)

10) Take some time and really listen to your own inner wisdom. (I am wise? I had no idea.)

11) All the troubles you have will pass away very quickly. (Um, unless the passing is my husband and most of my family and his, I don’t think so.)

12) He who takes notes listens well. (A good memory doesn’t count?)

13) (My favorite) It’s over your head now. Time to get some professional help. (My daughter got this one. He he.)

LOL - I like the last one, too. I wonder if fortune cookie writing earns much money? I could so do that job. :)

I got my husband a box of X-rated fortune cookies in San Francisco last summer. Now THOSE are scary...

We always read them starting with "While in bed...". Well, except for when the kids are with us.

Love the last one. I did a Christmas themed list last week, so this week I went with something more literary.

Hi Shelly,

No problems it happens. I don't know about a job writing the fortunes. Perhaps their hiring?

Hi Adelle,

Thank you.

Hi Inez,

I do too, lol, but only if I still have some soda left. There so dry other wise.

Hi Ms Menozzi,

I don't think it would pay much, shall we go see?

Thank you for the complement.

Hi Robin,

I had no idea they made an X version? That interesting.

Hi Jen,

I use to, and then . . . I got the ones you see above.

Hi F.C.,

I have to take a look.

Hi Paige,

I've done that too, and what they read worked into other things.

Hi Gwen,

That sounds like a fun game to play with your husband. I'll have to suggest it to my hubby.

Hi Heather,

I'll have to take a look.

Thank you everyone for leaving a comment.
