Hello, everyone!

The ideal fortune is a one-liner. Please send me your ideas for fortune cookies!

Here are my offerings:

Which came first the fortune cookie or the egg?

The future starts any minute now.

When I look into your eyes I see a Do Not Disturb sign.

Your dream is still to be claimed by you.

Run your own marathon race don’t walk a mile in my shoes.

If you’re going somewhere over the rainbow take an umbrella.

Instead of taking the stairs two at a time live on the ground floor.

Every picture tells a story so where’s yours?

Invisible ink is no reflection on you.

The next person who asks you to dance will understand you.

Enlightenment for Dummies? Be Zen for the hell of it!

If you want to meet me in person leave your gun home. 

You can take a horse to water but don’t expect the horse to pay for the drinks.
