Unfortunate










One of the simple delights offered by Chinese eateries is the traditional meal-end fortune cookie. The cardboard cookie taste isn't the attraction; it's all about the fortune. So imagine the consternation of my companion when he recently received this message: "A carrot a day, may keep cancer away." Bummer. What happened to meeting an attractive stranger? Or a warning about an unexpected visitor? He might even have settled for a lousy lucky number.

    reminds me of the one I got awhile back that said..

    "Things just got worse. Think what you have done."

    What the heck, Pom! That's just creepy. (Although those exact words run through my mind each time my phone rings...)

    It's a new thing. There's a fortune cookie company in NY or NJ that makes them. I heard about them a couple of months ago, but it's been a while since I've had Chinese so I haven't had the pleasure of receiving one myself.

    That explains everything, Faith. It's still jarring, though.
