Chris and I are a fan of Chinese restaurants and I am the one who tucks away the fortunes from the fortune cookies in my wallet.
Bit by bit they add up and I take them out, paper clip them together and stash them in my desk. When I get a nice little collection it is time to do yet another fortune post for your reading pleasure.
Today’s offerings span quite a few months of collecting and I hope you can gain some wisdom and maybe some laughs from reading them.

I think fortunes are not what they used to be. I remember them being a bit wittier and pithier. I guess it is a sign of the times.

Number 9 is dead on!! I once got “Your creativity will bring you success.” Which I had on my fridge for years. Once, my dad had me read his, as he forgot his reading glasses. So I read out loud to a table full of his old buddies, “You will leave all your money to your daughter.” Everyone laughed! Of course, that is not what it said. That´s the kind of humour my dad and I shared. A great memory.
That is a wonderful memory of your dad. I love that you had such a good relationship with your dad and that humor was a huge part of it.
My favorite of this bunch is the snowflake in an avalanche…
I like that one as well!
Share your dumplings with the Panda next to you.
I know. That one was from Panda Express or some such place I think. There was no panda next to me so I did not have to share, thank goodness.
“Share your dumplings with the Panda next to you.” Hmmmmm…where did that come from?
If I could get my husband to eat at a Chinese restaurant, I, too, could collect fortunes. What an entertaining way to start my morning.
I can’t believe he won’t even give it a go. He might fall in love with it. I can’t imagine not loving Chinese / Asian food!
I agree! I think fortunes used to be a bit edgier! Love this post idea.
I know. What happened to really good insightful fortunes? Thanks for stopping by!
In Philly there is a fortune cookie factory that you can tour. Best part, you can give yourself your own fortune, woo hoo! You will become aroused by a shampoo commercial. LOL
Well that is fun to be able to tour but that fortune is disturbing!!! Yikes!
My son got a great one: “About time I got out of that cookie.” 😀
I’ve had the “You will meet a new friend tomorrow” the day before surgery. I’m alive, so I guess there were a few new friends made. hahaha 🙂
I guess you made good new friends!!!
I chortled at “share your dumplings” too. My favorite is “The best profit of future is the past.” I puzzled over that one for years before realizing that it was a typical spell-checker mistake. Read it aloud to hear that it really is a wise saying.
Well that one is a really great one!!! Thanks for sharing!
We’ve noticed the same thing – fortunes are not what they used to be! When we went places with the Boy Scouts, they always liked to eat at Chinese restaurants. They loved to read the fortunes and add “in the latrine” to the end of every one. Of course, they thought that was hilarious!
I have not heard the “in the latrine” at the end. I had always heard “in bed”. Guess that was not PG enough for Scouts. 🙂
