Best fortune cookies

Inspired by the “Most Disturbing Fortune Cookie” thread, let’s list the best fortunes you got at a Chinese restaurant.

There are three for me, all in 1982.

The first was at a dinner at a Lunacon. There was an agent there looking for clients and he agreed to read my novel. My fortune that night was “New ventures will be successful.” The agent took me on a month or so later.

Later that year, my fortune was “You will never have to worry about a steady income.” Interestingly, since then, though I’ve had job troubles, I’ve always managed to end up better.

Then, in October, I got one saying, “Soon you will be sitting on top of the world.” A month later, my novel sold and my daughter was born.

I got this one over a year ago but still carry it around in my wallet:

“You are going to have a very comfortable old age.”

Well, there’s always this one. My other favourite is “Help! I’m being held hostage in a fortune cookie factory!”
