Only one of these is a fortune

The results of two more dinners from the local strip-mall Chinese joint: surprisingly good beef-and-broccoli, the opposite of fortunes in my cookies.

  • Your love of music will be an important part of your life
    • Refers to the future (“will be”), it’s a prediction and so a fortune.
  • Make decisions from the heart and let your head work it out
    • Lamer than usual attempt at pseudo-mysticism. Not a fortune.

two more fortune cookie paper slips

  • Love or money, or neither?
    • What in tarnation
  • May you grow rich
    • The careless reader might call this a “fortune”, as it’s in future tense. This is just a good luck wish, not a prediction.

Only one fortune out of four fortune cookies, typical.
