    But I Also Hate Them

    As long as the fortune cookie comes with an actual fortune, I'm happy. Something like "You will run into an old friend soon" or something. That's cool. What I hate is when I get the other kind of cookie, the kind that sounds more like an astrology reading...

    San Francisco

    I got a chance back in 1998 to visit a fortune cookie bakery/factory. There were these ladies making them fresh. It was open to the public, so you walk in, give them your money and then you get a bag of fresh cookies. They were cooled of course so they had a nice crunch. I tried...

    Two Types of Fortune Cookie Messages...

    I have found that most fortune cookie messages can be divided into two categories. Messages that 1) give you a fortune, or 2) messages that convey some sort of sage advice.   I much prefer the fortunes... I'm still waiting for the flying saucer from when I received...

    More than thirty years ago, I was dining with a group of friends (and the person this happened to is still a dearest friend now), one of whom was vexed at a crossroad between what one could/should do for who and why and how. His life was changed by a fortune cookie. I follow and...

    Except

    The one time I got one and there was no fortune inside. I joked I had no fortune because I had no future and we all had a good laugh. Still, it was a bit unsettling. Anyway I've had lots of fortunes since, it was just my luck to get a defective cookie.

    Sometimes fortune cookie advice is better

    than letting our minds go where they usually go - going other places in our minds can be a good idea. Fortune cookies give advice that is positive and pro-active.
