    The timing of this was perfect for me! I walked in the door from work ( after stopping for Chinese food and the obligatory fortune cookies). I taped my “fortunes” to the wall, signed on to WordPress, and here you are! Damn, the only thing is, they were good fortunes, and I feel like I shouldn’t put too much stock in them :0

    Reblogged this on Behind The Eyes and commented:
    Sometimes making light of something is so fulfilling providing us with an understanding that we are all connected some way shape or form. This post really had me laughing out loud and questioning why fortune cookies do not say what they are really trying to. Loved these translations!

    Your “unfortunate cookies” offer more possibilities for humor – and stories. I like your imagination. 🙂

    When in doubt, I go with the age-old practice of adding “in bed” to the end of my fortune…

    True story. Asian restaurant, Open fortune cookie…Blank paper. Call for and get second cookie,
    crack open, Blank paper again. Third cookie … Blank paper.
