So I going to be a gypsy fortune teller for my first Halloween party tomorrow. I don't know nearly any of the people at the party so I thought it is a good way to go up to people. My kids tell me that it is the most ridiculous costume ever, and the only thing that would make it worse is if I tell people's fortunes. So of course, now I have to!

I remember "cross my palm with gold"
"I see in your future...

But I am LOST. I do not think well on my feet and I don't want to give anyone a bad fortune since I don't know them at all.

Can anyone help out with a few funny generic things to say? I would be so grateful!

My dd will be a fortune teller at an elementary school Halloween party next week. We googled and found tons of "generic" fortunes.

Thanks Peaname and Ostrich girl - those are great. Peabay - what did you google. I googled quite a few different things and came up with WHY it is EVIL to be a fortune teller and then some arabic sayings on why you will go to you know what if you tell fortunes!

But no actual fortunes. I am not using the right words, I know!

The 2 stereotypical ones I remember are:

I see a trip to a foreign land

I see a tall, dark, handsome man in your future

I was a fortune teller a couple years ago. I printed off some tarot card images from the Internet smallish size, cut them, folded them up and put them in my cauldron. Then I walked around and invited people to select one and I would give them their fortune for the coming year. That was a huge hit and people loved it. You could do similar, but just make up fortunes.

You can buy a cheap plastic cauldron looking bowl at any Walgreens if you need one. Or use a black or silver bowl or container. Wave your other hand around over the bowl like your are doing hocus pocus while people reach in. And just be really obvious that it's not a real fortune.

Oh you have the 7 of cups! One week from today I see that you will have consumed SEVEN CUPS OF COFFEE!

Or make up a story

Hmmmm this card means you are facing a difficult choice. Will you audition for The Voice or The X Factor next year... I see a crabby British man in your future...

I actually told people what the cards meant for them but you could just be very very silly with it.

You will receive gifts from a large man wearing red!

A man you care about will ignore your requests for help, you must not get upset, for he is simply not enlightened like you are.

The road ahead of you is long, wear good shoes!

Someone must have read this yesterday before the boards changed! LOL

I would try searching "fortune cookie sayings" that should bring up some fortunes.
