I’ve been saving two fortune cookies. I ate the first one and read the fortune.

“Take the next big step.”

I threw the slip of paper in the trash, went upstairs, turned around and went back down to fish it out. I’m not eating the other cookie.

    I love fortune cookies–I keep eating them ’til I find a good fortune I like! Go ahead and eat the second one, Jane. It may have a better fortune. . . . 🙂

    I save them. I have a tea chest filled with (almost) every cookie fortune I’ve opened for the past (18? 20?) years. Hey, ya never know.

  4. Jane Wilson says:

    As it happens, I had not one, but TWO more fortune cookies.

    One slip of paper read, “It is up to you to clarify.”

    The second said, “It’s a good thing that life is not as serious as it seems to the waiter.”

  5. Well, you made me snort milk out my nose at this one. Of course, the fortune was true…you did take another step and with your new hip, too. ~nan 🙂
