Love Those Fortune Cookies, Part 23

fortune20cookieDec. 28, 2012

Who knew that fortune cookie fortune writers had such a sense of humor?

Tonight, I decided to try the Chinese restaurant across the street from the Starbucks where I hang down in Orange. Shanghai Gourmet is better than the usual Chinese fare, with styling and comfy decor and a lot of quality meal and appy choices. (All except, maddeningly enough, steamed vegetable dumplings. Does every higher-end Chinese place run out of these things before 6 o’clock? My favorite Chinese restaurant, House of Chao in Westville in New Haven, always seems to run out before, like, breakfast. Dammit! Well, at least the eggplant and chicken with garlic sauce was good …)

And the fortune was a beaut. Could equally apply to our present and past (and hopefully not future) lives:

“The one good thing about repeating your mistakes is that you know when to cringe.”

The only thing I’m cringing about now is how true it is. First time I ever had a fortune that made me laugh out loud.
