Fortune Cookie Challenge

Confessions of a Collector. It’s becoming established I collect many things. Those who’ve begun supporting me on Patreon even have photographic evidence. My collections aren’t always big and grand. Sometimes, they’re small and simple … and ride around in my coin purse for months … and have been piling up in a small box for years. Case in point:

Fortune Cookie Challenge

Here’s My Challenge. Fortune cookies can contain predictions, affirmation, proverbs, encouragement, or little reminders of universal truth. Some apply better than others. Here’s your chance to personalize a batch. Write a message to slip into the fortune cookie of any cast member of the Saga & Songs. I’ll collect them here, in comments to this post. And in two months’ time (on March 4, 2020), I’ll toss all your hopes, wishes, and predictions into a hat and draw some winners (and perhaps hand-select some personal favorites) and bestow fabulous (but heretofore unspecified) prizes. You’re allowed multiple entries. Have fun! ::twinkle::

  1. I have two cookie fortunes that I have kept for years. One says, ‘Procrastination is the thief of time.’ The other says, ‘Made in the USA.’
    It’s like they KNOW me…


  2. For Kip: “Get an order to go. You will soon be hungry again.”

    No kidding, I got that exact fortune once! We all laughed and laughed. But it’s especially appropriate for Kip ~~


  3. “What is given is valued less than what is earned.”

    “A penny saved is a terrible saving plan.”

    Or, if you apply the logic of adding either “in bed” or “beneath the sheets” to every fortune to, err, spice them up a bit:

    “What is unpleasant today will be loved tomorrow.”


  4. There’s a Chinese buffet in my area that has the most eclectic fortunes I’ve ever seen. I snapped pictures of them, and never forgot them because they were just off the wall. If any of the cast of the Saga or Songs got these it’d be a funny and confusing sight. (I’m super tempted to turn the fortunes I took pics of into memes for this contest so others could see but I’d have to email them or something, which I don’t mind doing haha).

    I can see Quen snapping open a cookie that reads: “In order to discover who you are, first learn who everybody else is. You’re what’s left.” (Quen: ???)

    And I can see Gingko excitedly opening a fortune cookie, but it reads: “Ignore previous cookie.” Suddenly Gingko has to rethink every fortune cookie he’s ever eaten…

    (These are ACTUAL fortunes I’ve gotten different times at the same resturant, haha).

  7. I’ve got one once and I took a picture because I wanted to keep it with me 🙂

    “Look for the dream that keeps coming back. It is your destiny”

  9. I’ll never forget the time I stopped at a Chinese restaurant in the mall and my fortune read, “You will go shopping.”

  11. For Suzu – Good things come to those who wait.

    For Akira – Don’t count your chickens before they’ve hatched. But if you must, count them twice.

    So much fun to read the submissions here! 🙂

  13. For Akira: A blind man is not always a man who cannot see, but a man who refuses to see what is right before him. / A man who refuses to see what is before him is as blind as the man who cannot see at all.

    For Suuzu: Even words you do not want to be told can be spoken sincerely.

    For Hisoka: Sometimes, those who speak the least have the most to say.
    For Hisoka: A wise man knows the importance of occasional silliness.
