Fortune Cookies

As you've read, last week we ate at the restaurant Fortune Cookies. While there, we were (of course) given fortune cookies. Fortune cookies are virtually unheard of in China, so we're not likely to find them there. According to my highly reliable source, Wikipedia.org, these little treats are most likely an Asian-American invention with Japanese origin.

In any case, He Laoshi suggested we should add the words "...in China" to the end of our fortunes. Mine was "Sing and rejoice, fortune is smiling upon you (in China)." But perhaps the most fitting fortune for our group was "Find release from your cares, have a good time (in China!)."

We will be having a good time there - and learning a lot - in less than two weeks!
