D&D Fortune Cookies

At the beginning of the semester I had to give a speech at convocation. I chose to speak about why the start of a new semester is like a fortune cookie. Throughout the speech I periodically opened up a fortune cookie, read the fortune, and made a comment. It was a fun speech and people seemed to like it. People now give me fortune cookies and make jokes about it. I keep trying to explain that I don’t necessarily like to eat fortune cookies, but that I use them during Dungeons and Dragons. I just like to take the fortunes out and put them on the D&D battle mat. The people at work then give me a blank look, shake their head, and pass a fortune cookie my way.

So, it’s easier just to show a picture than to explain.

  1. Love it, Laura! I’m sharing this one with Will. He’s got me reading D&D novels so I am pretty well-versed these days in half-elves and orcs. Your speech sounds wonderful. Brava!
