Introducing: Fortune Cookie Fridays!

So I had this crazy idea.

I seem to have a plethora of fortunes from fortune cookies.

I don't know why I kept them; I just did. Compounded by the fact that every time I order Chinese food from my favorite local restaurant, they throw in at least 3-4 cookies each time, I seem to have collected a lot.

And I know the sayings are sometimes kind of cheesy. Half the time, they're not even fortunes, such as "You will win a million dollars." Instead, there are cryptically-worded bits of wisdom packed into each sweet treat, along with some lucky numbers. I often get something out of them, though, because they kick off some creative, intuitive thinking on my part. I think they're my favorite part of the meal.

So, you've heard of Throwback Thursday? Well without further adieu, I introduce to you: Fortune Cookie Friday.

(I know, I know, it's "Flashback Friday" elsewhere. I'm paving a new path!)

I don't know that I'll post one every Friday, but when I do post a fortune cookie fortune, I'll do it on a Friday, as a way to kick off the weekend. With it, I'll post some thoughts about whatever comes out of the cookie, but I'd also love your comments on what each one says to you! Let's have some fun with this!

If you want to play along, you can open some fortune cookies, yourself, and post them in the comments! If you don't have any, you can get them at this link.

Look for this feature to start soon!

  1. Haha I should look out for fortune cookies during coming gatherings as it's Chinese New Year so that I can share it on your post. :)

  2. This is a fun series! I'll look forward for your luck in the next Fridays to come!

  3. I love it! Looking forward to the next one!

    What's been the most impactful fortune you've received within the last year? Care to share it?

    1. Gee, that's a great question! I'm not sure I've had a "most impactful" one this year -- there have been a lot of really good ones. I'll have to let you know as I review them and post them here. :) First one will go live this Friday for Lunar New Year.
