    Wow, there are gremlins in the website tonight. Two of the worse fortunes I got in cookies were in Iowa. The first was. “May all your days be long.” Ugh, and the second was “May your future hold sparkling days.” Now, what is that supposed to mean?

    By the way, your cookie quotation is ascribed to both Benjamin Franklin and Benjamin Disraeli. Another source claims it is from Miguel de Cervantes. Take your pick.

    I can’t wait for the new translation fortune cookies.
    “Have an ineffible day”
    “This cookie is no longer inviolate”
    “May your dreams be consubstantial with your reality”
    “Good fortune will be with your spirit”

    Something coming up that calls for Champagne, maybe? :-)

    Sigh, that would be nice. However, the cookie was eaten quite awhile ago.
