Some Fortunes….


I’ve been busy cleaning my office, now that it is cool enough to move back upstairs. (Good thing, too, as I seem to think better in my office.) As I’ve been working my way through my usual mess I’ve been running across those little fortunes you get in fortune cookies. I tend to keep the ones that I find interesting.

Question: Do you all add “in bed’ or “between the sheets” to the end of your fortunes? It does tend to add to the amusement value in my experience. But then, as I recently discovered while enjoying the film “Mamma Mia” I’m sort of fifty at the same time that I’m sort of ten. (You know that thing where someone says “shhh” and someone else adds “it”? Yeah? I still think that’s funny. My sense of humor seems to be still in fifth grade.) Anyway, whether you add endings to amuse yourself or not, here are the fortunes that I’ve come across.

Look into the crystal ball…
* Any impatience you show will only create more stress.

* He that seeks will find.

* An enjoyable vacation is awaiting you.

* Never let an opportunity pass you by.

* Share yourself and your possessions with close friends.

* Forge ahead with your new ideas.

* Assert yourself, your ideas are worthwhile. (From a couple of days ago at Panda Express.)

    Do you know what I hate? The ‘fortunes’ that aren’t fortunes at all. These seem to be becoming more common. The ones you have hear are all fortune-y. But I’ve gotten a lot that are just little sayings. Bah!

    I can’t quite remember where I heard it, but I heard a guy say that it’s much more fun to tag “except for in bed” on the end of fortunes.

    Those are weird, aren’t they Emma?

    I like that, JM. I might start using it.

    I have one at my computer at work. “Listen these next few days to your friends to get the answers you seek.” I figured there isn’t an expiration so…may be I should listen to them continuously? :P
