OK, I didn't have any fortune cookies in my runtime, a magic eight ball will have to do ;)

So, you are finishing up at the Chinese restaurant, open your fortune cookie, and it says... what?

Since it is a little scrap of paper, space is limited: 20 words max.

You may enter as many times as you like, and while this is an advanced contest (So everybody can participate) the prize is a beginner trophy.


Contest Rules
* Entry Fee: Free
* Prize: Beginner Medal
* Level: Advanced It's a fortune cookie fortune though, and grammar is sometimes iffy on those... so grammar rules are relaxed. It has to sound like what you'd get out of a fortune cookie.

* Voting period: 2 days
* All regular Writing Deck Rules apply.
* Multiple entries are allowed in this contest, however, any entry not meeting 'advanced' standards will be disqualified. So take your time, proofread carefully, and make your entry count.
