rainWhen I was a boy, I lived in China.  Well, Taiwan, to be more precise.  I mostly remember eating noodles – they had little comics in them that I didn’t understand.  It wasn’t until later, when we returned to the U.S., that I recall my first fortune cookies.

After years of my boys teasing about ideas for fortune cookie sayings, I took a stab at this NaPoWriMo prompt to write my own.

Which is your favorite?  Also, did you get the Rule #34 reference?
