Default Fortune Cookie Horror

Before I opened my individually-wrapped fortune cookie last night, I
read the label:

"Bleached wheat flour, sugar, ... high fructose cyamopsis
tetragonoloba..."

I put the fortune cookie down and stepped back carefully, not
wanting to know what else was in store for me.

We order Chinese food delivery at work at pretty routinely. One of my
friend's got a fortune cookie paper that actually had to *nerve* to say
"Why lie about your age when it is obvious" LOL LOL LOL

We tease her about it often

Yes, but are they in pre-contemplation, contemplation, or
preparation? It's important to identify the exact readiness to
quit ....

Just another reason to do what I do.

When eating at a Chinese restaurant with others,
if fortune cookies are served at the end, I refuse
to eat mine or even pick it up. Drives some people
nuts, who want to see the fortune.

"You can have it."

"No, it's your fortune. You opened it."

have to eat the cookie. i open mine and give the cookie to my girlfriend.

I have the last fortune I got stuck to my monitor- it says

Custom here is NOT to pick your own fortune. Pick someone else's and
swap before you open. Don't ask me why, don't know!
