2021 Fortunes

You Not Have Coronavirus
2021 Fortune Cookie

Has the New Year ever been so welcome?

We can’t wait for the next decade, for 2021, for surely, surely, the world’s fortunes will be better, right?

You never know. 

So to set the mood, Magellan (who had to learn some new programming skills) and I have 21 Fortune Cookies for you to open.

From our bubble to yours, best wishes that 2021 brings you an abundance of good fortune—starting with a little laughter today: 21 Fortune Cookies for 2021.

 

You will be hungry again in one hour
He who laughs at himself never runs out of things to laugh at
Next time, order the shrimp
If you look back, you’ll soon be going that way
Some days you are pigeon, some days you are statue. Today, bring umbrella.
You have rice in your teeth
Wise person never try to get even. Wise person get odder.
Stop procrastinating—starting tomorrow
Your reality check about to bounce
Stop eating now. Food poisoning no fun.
Drive like hell, you will get there
Person who rests on laurels gets thorn in backside
Politicians are like diapers: change often, and for same reason
Practice safe eating. Always use condiments.
Your liver hates you
Life is sexually transmitted condition
Dijon vu—the same mustard as before
You have kleptomania. Take something for it.
Confucius say man who fart in church sit in own pew
Rizaelnig you can raed this mepsislled fnurute will be the hgihgliht of yuor day
A fool and his money are soon partying

      TY Jolanta for the poetry. As Mark Twain wrote, “I can live for a month on a compliment,” although in my case your kind words are bolstered by fruitcake, stollen squares, Raspberry Bouche Noel…

    A great end to the year that wasn’t.

    Always a gift to start the New Year with a smile and words of wisdom from seniors, none better.

    Hopefully we can move forward and will be able to travel this year,
    most important is to retain our health and longevity.

    Great job on the blog with stories and photography. 👍👍

    Thanks for sharing, made every Sunday like it’s own Fortune Cookie, a gift to us all.
