Friendly Contributions

"Love is the only medicine for a broken heart."

Upon receiving this not-a-fortune, my friend boogrock commented, "Really?!? I was sure it was Vicodin! Guess I was wrong!"

Another friend and loyal reader, Jess, received a half-a-fortune on a recent visit to Godai Sushi Bar in San Antonio, Texas. She opened her cookie and found half of the insert. The remaining first line read, "ear will be," followed by a second line of "lled with happiness." I think this could have been an actual fortune that read "Your year will be filled with happiness," but we'll never know for sure.

Jess's dinner companion received an informational not-a-fortune: "El capital de California es Sacremento." Thanks for the geography (and Spanish) lesson, Godai.

I've blogged about food-related cookie inserts before and Jaclyn's not-a-fortune certainly fits in that category:
"Follow your Dreams, first start with spring rolls."
(Actually, there are days when I dream about my friend Colleen's spring rolls, but that is neither here nor there.)

Mr. Fabulous sent me a link to this not-a-fortune, which he deemed "odd":

"Never despair, but if you do, work on in despair."
(I find the entire website from which this not-a-fortune came good for a laugh. Check it out.)

Thanks for stopping by, and thanks to my friends and readers for your continued contributions. Keep an eye out for my upcoming post on Lone Star beer bottle caps. They have little sayings on them, much like the Magic Hat bottle caps I've blogged about here and here.
