Last night Bea Dazzler, UnScurvyGirl, and I enjoyed some takeout followed by fortune cookies. It had been quite some time since I had received a fortune cookie. While my cookie insert (located on the top in the photo above) was interesting, it was not a fortune:
"Excitement and intrigue follow you closely wherever you go!"
Bea Dazzler's not-a-fortune is really more of an adage:
"The secret of vast riches begins with a single penny."
However, this cookie insert includes her lucky number, which allows her to take it to heart.
[Note: you may recall from my Dog-Friendly Fortune Cookie post that one of the canine loves of my life is The Penny. When Bea Dazzler added "in bed" to the end of her not-a-fortune, this caused me to respond with "My Penny?!?"
Not feeling like choosing her own fortune cookie, UnScurvyGirl wanted me to toss her one. Believing that you should choose your own fortune (or not-a-fortune), I tossed the cookies (no pun intended) onto the table. She selected the cookie she felt was pointing at her. And she's the only one who received an actual fortune:
"The love of your life will appear in front of you unexpectedly!"
One out of three isn't bad.
