Title: Fortune Cookies.
Post by: Golden State Warrior on February 12, 2008, 09:42:22 PM
I don't recall getting any unusual or negative fortunes. What about you? If not, just post your most memorable fortune.

Mine was, "You will experience a great change in your life." Or something to that extent.

Six months later, I left California for the East Coast. Cali was my home for twenty something odd years.

I haven't got any cool ones but I heard one of my friends got one that said "Smile if you like this fortune cookie."

My friend got one when we went to Chinese food that said something along the lines of "You should watch yourself and sleep with one eye open."

My friend bought some type of Chinese food at our high school and it came with a fortune cookie that said "Stay drug free!"
that's all it said... Wahoo it's not like a fortune cookie will STOP you from doing drugs if you're doing that kinda thing but whatever xD

There are also other variations like "Too cool for school!" and random corny stuff like that.

I had a fortune cookie today! My fortune reads, "Trust your intuition. The universe is guiding your life."
^_^ I like it.

PS: All my friends think I'm weird because I like the taste of fortune cookies. Anyone else like them?

The taste of the fortune cookie is very unique. I can't find anything else like it.

Well... maybe those waffle cones are pretty close.

I usually get generic sucky ones. I make them better by tacking "in bed" onto the ends of them.

"You will come to a great fortune - in bed."
"You will find new love - in bed."

My mom did get one a while back that said "You will dazzle your boss with your work skills" or something, which just ended up hilarious when I added the in bed thing.

I get paragraphs for my fortunes. I Usually keep them becuase they are like 4 sentances long. XD Unfortunately I can't find them, nor do I have the ability to remember such long winded fortunes. XD

I think it was rude enough, and I was just glad I wasn't married. Seriously I think they are scraping the bottom of the barrel trying to come up with fortunes nowadays.

Never underestimate the power of a fortune in a fortune cookie!

Ok I got one "Life to you is a dashing and bold adventure." I was like Holy crap! How did it know? Thats so true, but it was a year ago and to this day I pray that something cool will happen, like around the time of the earthquake me and my friends and I were hoping that the bigger earthquake would happen without anyone getting hurt.

A coworker showed me hers today (she had it laminated) and it said:

"The biggest danger is your stupidity." It was followed by some random numbers for the lottery.

I can see that going on a t-shirt.

I got one that I kept for awhile (til it ripped, sadly) that said "Don't worry about the world ending today - it's already tomorrow in Australia."  :D
