It is always nice when the universe conspires to tell us to get outta town and go travel.
This morning I cracked open a Chinese fortune cookie left over from my kids’ dinner from the weekend.
This is the fortune message:
- Will it be a new vacation? I have some planned vacations. Just wondering if my fortune is predicting an undiscovered vacation, such as an impending call about winning a grand prize vacation.
- When will this vacation occur? Again, I have some planned vacations. Not sure I can fit another one into the schedule. Is there a statute of limitations for my fortune?
- Is this my fortune? So, the fortune cookie was not for one of my meals. Then again, I paid for the food, picked it up, and brought it home. Does a fortune cookie have to be opened immediately after a meal or is it in effect two days later? Whew, I need to consult a fortune cookie expert.
- Is the misspelling intentional and does it make the fortune more or less valid? Because I am not goning to do nuttin’ but I am going to take a vacation–if you know what I mean.
I do have a collection of travel-related fortune cookie messages. Hmm, I guess I will put them in a future post.
Here is a listing of fortune cookie messages.
What is your favorite Chinese fortune cookie message?
