Fortune Cookies [Feb. 24th, 2009|08:35 am]
terribleturnip
I love fortune cookies. Stale, slightly sticky, with generally disappointing fortunes. Except for the one time that said "Your hard work is generally underappreciated" which made me feel better both in terms of regular fortune and the "between the sheets" fortune reporting. And of course, at the risk of harping on a theme, I still carry around the fortune I got that said "Your hard work will soon pay off". Still waiting.

Please, let it still not be in my wallet when you find me as an old lady, fallen down the stairs, three days gone, gnawed on by cats and greyhounds.

And somewhere I have a recipe for homemade fortune cookies, which I've never made, mostly because...I have the lazy. But also because I vaguely suspect that they won't taste right and wouldn't be worth all of the work. I'm more the Queen of, "yes, isn't it fabulous? Took me 15 minutes."

And then I found out that you can custom order them and thought, oooh, jettison that recipe. But have never really had an event where I thought I could go through enough cookies to make it worthwhile.

But these kids have inspired me. Except I may have to commission THEM to write the fortunes, 'cause they're hysterical.

When Anne home from school I'll ask her for a few fortunes. At 14, though, hers may be a bit more cynical.

The best fortune I ever got was when my co-workers at the University of Minnesota took me out for lunch to welcome me on the the first day of my new job. My fortune read "Accept the next job offer you receive."
