Fortune cookies are American in origin, which is probably what makes them hilarious rather than spooky/scary the way real Chinese rituals can be. I like how it’s such a joke so I bought a bag and distributed them at my workplace. It was great to see everyone take a quick break and laugh over their ‘fortune’/’advice’ printed on the little slip of paper.
Here’s what I got –
“when you’re in a good mood, good things will naturally turn up.”
my colleague, privy to all my post-breakup emotional upheavals, saw that and smirked, saying ‘that obviously hasn’t happened yet.’
perhaps things are about to take a little turn for the better.
