It's a little gold Chinese fortune cookie that opens up and holds your favorite Chinese fortunes for safe keeping. You know, the really good fortunes that you get at the Chinese restaurant and you keep because you truly believe in it's wisdom or it's prophecy of your impending good fortune.
Usually, I keep the good ones in my wallet, but now I have this shiny little number to house all of my pending good fortune. I bought this at a cute little boutique that was having another one of my new favorite things-a 75% off sale! I ended up getting it for a few dollars.
When I got home, I emptied my wallet and purse of the saved fortunes and found that I had been carrying 10 small pieces of paper around for years.
Some of my favorites:
"There will be many surprises; unexpected gains are likely."
"A dream will always triumph over reality, once it is given a chance."
"Wise men avoid troubles while fools search for them."
"You will enjoy good health, you will be surrounded by luxury."
"The small steps you take will ultimately bring you great fortune."
"Many a false step is made by standing still."
Now go to your wallet and pull out your fortunes and share their wisdom here. Have any of the fortunes come true?
