Mini-Fortune Cookie Round-Up with a Twist

The last fortune cookie round-up was quite extensive yet also fairly cut and dry. Fortunes? Check. Not-a-fortunes? Check. Nothing fell outside of those lines. One of the cookie inserts in this round-up blurs the lines, at least in my opinion. And I'm asking you, my loyal readers, to help me decide into which category the questionable insert falls.

But first, the round-up.

I have only one actual fortune to share this time, received by my good friend Allison, a loyal reader and frequent contributor:
"Your most memorable dream will come true."
{Her response: "I better get to dreaming!"}


As Allison received the above fortune, her husband's cookie revealed the following not-a-fortune:
"You shouldn't overspend at the moment. Frugality is important."
{A bit of a clotheshorse, Allison's hubby received this particular not-a-fortune the same day he received a handwritten thank-you note in the mail from a local department store. Ah, timing.}

"Your graceful qualities make difficult things seem easy."

"The simplest answer is to act."
{This was my Audriella's not-a-fortune after dinner tonight, though we've received it before.}

"You do not have to know where you are going to be headed in the right direction."
{I love when something tells me what I don't need to know...}

And finally:

G's cookie insert has me stumped. Is it a fortune or not-a-fortune?

"Your happy heart brings joy and peace where there is none."

I'm leaning towards not-a-fortune, but it does seem to be forward-thinking. How about a poll to settle it? Please vote on whether you think this is an actual fortune or one of the more common not-a-fortunes. And, as always, your comments are welcome.


  1. I think Paul's fortune is the best - and by that I mean funniest because of the circumstances. ;)
    But... since you didn't ask that I am voting "not-a-fortune."

  2. That sounds a little depressing. I'm thinking "not-a-fortune" too!

  3. I think it's not-a-fortune. And I need the not-a-fortune about frugality. But instead, I'll continue spending in hopes of my own hand written thanks you note sometime!
