Good Fortune

Fortunes? I'm fond of them, though I'm more apt to write happy, outlandish fortunes for friends' birthdays than to seek them out myself. (But do I always crack open my cookie the moment it arrives after dinner? Yes.)

I wanted a fortune element in the second book but I wanted it to arrive in a way that related to the mountains and the lodge.

Three of the four friends opt to get a fortune, one does not. The three fortunes run the gamut from "wonderful" to "let's not discuss it."

Any chance Fair's pinecone actually said "aspired?"

wealhtheow! No. But. BUT. But you are smart. Feel free to email me if you have a second guess. Or hang tight. Typing fast, swear.

Hmmmm.

You know, fortunes only count if you eat at least half the cookie before reading it. Maybe there's some similar trick to the pinecones?

Wilfair Book said...

Jamila! My husband says the same thing. Well, he says a person has to eat the entire cookie. I almost never do, because I'm full of delicious Szechuan noodles.

That is a good thought re: the pinecone. Brain kiss. (Too forward?)

I got a brain kiss! Hurray!!
