Fortune Cookies

We had fortune cookies at Annie's graduation party. I thought this was a fun idea. All seem to enjoy them.
I have always liked fortune cookies. I remember when I was a little girl, my parents went to a Chinese Restaurant and Mom brought Julie & I home the fortune cookies. I was hooked from that point on. Disappointed the first time went to a Chinese restaurant, thinking I would love the food like the cookies. I was wrong! Asian Cuisine is not my cup of tea!
Fortune Cookies are interesting. I don't "believe" in them. However, I do read them and I make them apply. Sometimes I will get surprised by one that is right on target. It's like, "hmmm. This is so true!"
A couple of very interesting ones I received recently are the following:
"Friends long absent are coming back to you."
I recently reconnected with Lynn. I could not be happier about that reconnection.
another one was:
"You will get your hearts desire."
We are in the process of getting a house that I am in love with and can see myself living there for the rest of our lives happily ever after.
I also got one saying I was "going to have a new love affair"
Then I met Tinka the bunny that has melted my heart. (not always quite what you think). It is a love affair in a sense. Tinka certainly has captured my heart.
Coincidence? I wonder.
I find it all interesting.
Do we manipulate things when we have a idea put into our thoughts?
Is it what it is, or is it all by chance?
Either way, I will continue to have fun with these silly little fortunes. I will make what I want of them and I will continue to eat the yummy cookies!

You need to frequent more chinese places and taste different dishes. Chinese food can be very bad or very good.

My husband hates Chinese food but Sarah and I like it. But we all agree on the fortune cookies - how fun they are! Cute post, Janis!
