I’ve always loved fortune cookies. It’s a dessert and a clue to your future in one neat little package!
Too often, though, the “fortunes” are not fortunes at all. They’re bland and banal statements about life: “The surest way to have nothing to give is to give nothing.” Or, they’re preachy words for living: “Do not be overly judgmental of your loved one’s intentions or actions.”
But last night, at my dad’s Festive Birthday Dinner (Chinese Restaurant Edition), Zoe got a proper fortune: “Right now there’s an energy pushing you in a new direction.”
Pretty good, huh? I don’t know what it means, but I’ll tell you what: I’m really hoping it means potty training.
Whats the best (or worst) fortune you’ve ever gotten in a cookie?
