If Fortune Cookies Were Only Real Fortunes

My wife Lori and I went to eat at THE WOK recently.  We eat there often.  Love the place.  I do have one gripe about what folks call fortune cookies though.  And that is they really aren’t fortune cookies.  I call them ADVICE COOKIES! :) I don’t think I’ve ever gotten a cookie with a real fortune inside!  Anyway, here’s why I think the way I do about them:

Some of these I found while surfing the ‘inter-web’, some are actual ones that I have received in my cookie.

  1. “You will find a bushel of money.”
  2. “Your smile will tell you what makes you feel good.”
  3. “You are going to have some new clothes.”
  4. “Your family is young, gifted and attractive.”
  5. “There is a true and sincere friendship between you both.”
  6. “The night life is for you.”
  7. “Face facts with dignity.”
  8. “You are magnetic in your bearing.”
  9. “You are free to invent your life.”
  10. “Good sense is the master of human life.”
  11. “Maybe someday we will live on the moon!”
  12. “Don’t panic.”
  13. “If you don’t have time to live your life now, when will you?”
  14. “Ignorance never settles a question.”
  15. “The best year-round temperature is a warm heart and a cool head.”
  16. “Avert misunderstanding by calm, poise, and balance.”
  17. “Simplicity and clarity should be your theme in dress.”
  18. “You have a potential urge and the ability for accomplishment.”
  19. “Do you believe? Endurance and persistence will be rewarded.”
  20. “Good Luck bestows upon you. You will get what your heart desires.”
  21. “Pat yourself on the back for creating an opportunity.”
  22. “It could be better, but it’s good enough.”
  23. “You will find a thing. It may be important.”
  24. “The calling that has sounded will not be the lasting call.”
  25. “In youth and beauty, wisdom is rare.”

Superstitions surrounding fortune cookies:

  • The cookie must be eaten for the fortune to come true.
  • The fortune must be read before any of the cookie is consumed or it won’t come true.
  • The fortune must be read aloud to come true.
  • The cookie must be chosen with your eyes closed.
