Yes, Jewelz, I do! :(

I feel even more gypped when I open the cookie & there is no fortune in it. :o :shock: A fortune cookie without a fortune in it is just plain wrong! :evil: While everyone else is reading their fortunes, your cookie is screeching "YOU HAVE NO FORTUNE!" :oops: :cry: :lol:

LOL... Your too funny! :lol: :lol: :lol: Yeah, I have been on the receiving end of an empty fortune cookie. Its just wrong. :twisted: Last summer in San Francisco we went to Chinatown (fun little area). I walked in a bakery looking for fortune cookies. Then I had to silently remind myself that it was an American invention. So I picked up some sesame cookies instead. Most everything looked tasty. :D


If the fortune cookie was full of chocolate, I might not miss the fortune. ;)

Thomas, if the cookie was full of chocolate, I'd consider that getting a very good fortune! :lol: :D

Okay, Terri, I just have to remind you to add the "in bed" to that one fortune "Perhaps you've been focusing too much on yourself." ROFLOL! :lol: :oops:

**Warning** Rambling on with another life story…RUN! LOL

Even though it is just a little cookie and piece of paper, fortune cookies hold a special place for me. After losing my first pregnancy to a miscarriage, I was devastated. A few months later, the hubby and I decided to try again. I thought it would be easy and within no time, we would conceive, but no such luck. Fourteen months later, we were still hoping, praying & waiting. We went out one weekend and decided to eat Chinese. At the end of our meal, the server brought our bill and fortune cookies. I opened mine and had to read it a few times. It brought the biggest smile to my face. It read, All your hard work will pay off soon. As I set there with that huge goofy smile on my face, I look over and see the same smile on my hubby’s face. His read Strike while the iron is hot and your outcome will be as you wish. We took both of those as a sign that we were on the right track. Well, not long after that I found out that I was 2 weeks pregnant with our now 18-month-old son. We know that the fortune did not make any difference with us conceiving, but it was just the small pick-me-up that we needed to let us know that not all hope was lost. Sorry for the story, but I had to share.

I found this to be a very heartwarming story, MysticFan, especially for those of us who had some similar struggles to have children! Thank you for sharing it! Also, you never know when sharing from real life will be just the encouragement that someone on the forum needs! :)
