I Love Fortune Cookies

    Some of them make me laugh.

    I've often thought of developing a product called "misfortune cookies". They would contain messages like: "Oops, you broke your cookie" "And what were you expecting this little piece of paper to say?" "Sorry, please play again." "Cookie malfunction. Contact the manufacturer...

    But I Also Hate Them

    As long as the fortune cookie comes with an actual fortune, I'm happy. Something like "You will run into an old friend soon" or something. That's cool. What I hate is when I get the other kind of cookie, the kind that sounds more like an astrology reading...

    My Favorite Fortune...

    More than thirty years ago, I was dining with a group of friends (and the person this happened to is still a dearest friend now), one of whom was vexed at a crossroad between what one could/should do for who and why and how. His life was changed by a fortune cookie. I follow and...

    Except

    The one time I got one and there was no fortune inside. I joked I had no fortune because I had no future and we all had a good laugh. Still, it was a bit unsettling. Anyway I've had lots of fortunes since, it was just my luck to get a defective cookie.
