Excel Fortune Cookies: Friday Fun

image Have you done this? After lunch in a Chinese restaurant, everyone grabs a fortune cookie, and reads their fortune aloud. And, at the end of the printed fortune, you add, "in bed." Maybe it's just the groups that I hang out with, but we find this hilarious.

This week, when typing, I added "in Excel" at the end of the line. That reminded me of the fortune cookie game, and it seemed like a great new version for the office crowd.

So, the next time you're reading those fortune cookies, end with "in Excel" instead of "in bed". Your co-workers will think that you're a comedic genius!

Here are a few sample fortune cookie fortunes, to get you started – in Excel.

  • A pleasant surprise is waiting for you.
  • Accept something that you cannot change, and you will feel better.
  • Practice makes perfect.
  • Stop searching forever, happiness is just next to you.
  • The smart thing to do is to begin trusting your intuitions.
  • You are admired by everyone for your talent and ability.
  • Your infinite capacity for patience will be rewarded sooner or later.

And if you have any other Excel enhanced fortunes, please add them in the comments.

    I'm pretty sure that in the groups I hang out in, the "in bed" will sound funnier than "in Excel". I get enough weird looks and exasperated sighs as it is :)

    Could work really well at the next MVP Summit, though...
