You’d have to know the difference between my husband and me to really understand the irony of our respective fortune cookies. He’s just a “take it as it comes!” “No worries!” kind of guy, while I worry about the bills and the kids and the money. It causes tension between us, of course. But I swear, everyone of his fortune cookies is some variation of, “A lot of fun will be coming your way soon!” or “You will meet exciting people soon!” and mine were some variation of “All of your hard work will pay off soon!” or “Work extra hard this week and you will see results soon!” Bleh!

Ya’ll do know about adding the words ” bed,” at the end of your cookie fortunes, don’t you? Just checkin’!

On my 18th birthday, my family and I went to a Chinese place for my birthday. I kid you not, my fortune said, “Inspected by #14.”

I just had a fortune cookie that said I would be ‘dancing to a different beat next summer’. Now if I add ‘in bed’ to that, I’m a happy camper!

We do the add “in bed” thing at our house, too. That makes almost every fortune funny. They just aren’t the same without “in bed” anymore. :)

You have no idea how amazing your timing is on this question.

THIS was in my fortune cookie yesterday.

I saved it, trying to figure out a way to incorporate it into one of my posts. Luckily you came along & asked this question. Fate…? I think so. :)

I’ve gotten some awesome fortune cookies over the years. Here are the ones I’ve saved:

You have inexhaustible wisdom and power. Hell yeah! Haha.
You home is a pleasant place from which you draw happiness. Aside from the typo, true.
God will give you everything that you want. Interesting, as I am an atheist. ALSO: IN BED.
Everyone has a photographic memory. Some just don’t have film. This is SO ME.

The other day, my 15 year old daughter and a 14 year old (girl) friend of hers got the same exact fortune:
You will be very happy with your wife. Maybe they’ll marry each other?
