Write Your Own Fortune

I always save the fortune from the fortune cookie when we get Chinese food. Some are pretty silly, some are just plain out there and yet the odd one really does get me thinking. However, they do start to clutter up my working space so now and then I write them into my personal blog (the good ones) and then get rid of all the little bits of paper they come on.

Have you ever written your own fortune? What would you really like to hear? Try to write a few then pick your favourite.

Here are the fortunes I’ve got around now, the good, the silly and the not so good after all:
