Fortune Cookies
Posted 12/17/14
Do you believe them?
Do you look forward to opening one up?
Do you keep your fortunes?
Do you play the numbers on the lottery?

What do you think about them in general?


I, personally, really like the way they taste. Haha.. I'm also always curious about the fortunes inside, but they mostly annoy me since I always seem to get love related ones. Ugghh..

There was one time when I asked my mom to buy me a whole box of them when she went to Chinatown. Unfortunately, she wasn't paying attention to the section / sign where she grabbed them from because she ended up getting me a box of kinky fortune cookies. Heh.. Needless to say it was pretty awkward the first time I opened one up.

I love them, and I have a weird rule about it, you gotta eat the whole cookie or the fortune wont come true :p.

I like to eat 'em and see what the fortune says. I don't take it to heart of course, but it's always nice to read. I don't keep them either, I just throw them away.

not really, though sometimes I get awkwardly accurate ones to what is on my mind...And a tendency towards the odd ones. Like one that said people love me for both sides of my personality, (when oddly I'm ruminating on my two halves)
Do you look forward to opening one up?
Yes. Of course!
Do you keep your fortunes?
usually, but I'm not anal retentive about them
Do you play the numbers on the lottery?
hell no! I am deathly allergic to games of chance if I can't rig them in my favor... XD

they're fun, and they don't taste too bad. Personally I prefer the almond cookies, but the fortunes are a draw for the fortune cookies.

Your story about the kinky ones.. I bought a box for a friend once but couldn't bear to give them to them, lest they got the wrong idea. (they had a perverted sense of humor, and I'm not a purposefully sexual person. More likely than not to say something inappropriate for laughs and get it mistaken for actually coming on to someone),

Somehow they simply disappeared over the years. God only knows where. O.o

Its alot like those magic eight balls with a triangular object suspended in liquid inside. Shake it up and it tells you something "random" , (except with fortune cookies its a lot more random as there are only so many sides in the eight balls. .)
As for the taste? Like a vanilla wafer, wasn't it? Its been awhile, though. :(
the sauce.. ugh..

There's a bit of an orange flavor to it too.

What sauce?

With the magic eight balls you had to ask it something, and it only had a few limited responses. With fortune cookies, the fortunes are endless! I enjoy them a lot, ( I have had fun with some, where you are supposed to say "in bed" after you read the fortune out loud). Overall I really like to see what they say! I have to admit when I get an empty fortune cookie, it makes me feel a little anxious. And they have a good taste too, yes like vanilla.

Do you believe them? NOPE.

Do you look forward to opening one up? NOPE. THEY ARE MADE OF WHEAT AND TOO HARD FOR MY TEETH TO BITE DOWN ON.

Do you keep your fortunes? NOPE.

Do you play the numbers on the lottery? I DON'T SEE THE POINT TO.

What do you think about them in general? JUST ANOTHER FALSE REASON TO BELIEVE IN.

The misfortune cookies are always more fun. Just make the swap without being noticed and let the hilarity ensue.

Not really.

The irony of Chinese Fortune Cookies is that they are not Chinese at all. Which is why you do not see them in China.

They are actually Japanese in origin, and created by Japanese Americans on the West Coast who based it off an existing Japanese recipe.. Chinese Americans picked up on them and effectively took over the whole concept of the fortune cookie during World War II while the Japanese Americans were interned.

Or as it can be said, the Chinese Fortune Cookie was invented by the Japanese, Popularized by the Chinese, and Consumed by Americans.

So, no I do not believe in them. As they are neither Chinese, nor Fortunes, nor even cookies.

Of course, they are tasty.

Sometimes I believe them. I do look forward to opening them. I only keep the ones that I think are good. No I don't play the numbers. I like to eat the cookies but sometimes I get the same fortune, and that's disappointing.
