fortune cookies

On January 2nd, I got two very interesting fortune cookies. I can only find one of them, which says “Remember three months from this date. Good things are in store for you.” The other one started with “Someone is interested in you.” The second part was something along the lines of “be on the lookout” or “be aware.”

The only other fortune cookie I’ve ever heard about that mentioned a specific timeframe for a prediction was one that my wife got around the time of her divorce from her first husband. It said something very close to “Within a year, you will be married.” Apparently that elicited a derisive “yeah, like that’s going to ever happen” … but our wedding was less than a year later later.

Yesterday, I got two more interesting fortunes. “A friend will soon reveal an exciting secret to you!” “You will take a chance in the near future, and win.”
