What a fortune,,,,,Cookie

We went to the new Asian Grill / Buffet the other day. The Sushi was pretty good, and my sinuses are still clear after a little too much Wasabi. As soon as it looked like we were heading to the dessert table, a cute little Asian girl zoomed in with fortune cookies and the bill. I've often wondered if there is some sort of mental sonar they use? Or do they just count the plates you took, apply an algorithm found in an Apple, and divide by 3? But i digress.

Now i don't put a lot of stock in the fortunes found inside those cookies. But this time, as i broke it open and read it while using a piece to scoop some ice cream out of its cup, i realized that this one could be a real life changer. Something that might really come in handy in life. The answer to so many of life's nagging puzzles.


If your cookie is in 3 pieces, the answer is no.

I looked down and sure enough i saw three pieces. This had to be a sign. Some spiritual awakening that would serve as a guide for the future. Just think of all the questions in life that this simple fortune could solve.

Will giving that winning Mega Million ticket to that oddly dressed stranger that smells bad, make me happy?

Should i play Mario Andredi on the local side streets and leave the local cops in the dust?
Would putting the q-tip in my power drill clean my ears really good?

Should i quit my job, move to a mountain cave, and contemplate my navel (one I've seldom asked)??

As i pondered these deep quandaries, the melting ice cream began dripping down my hand. I looked down and realized that a fourth piece of cookie had fallen into the ice cream cup. So much for all the answers to life's nagging puzzles. I guess i'll keep wondering like my hero, who is still sitting on the 12th floor of the Acme Building trying to find the answer to life persistent questions, Guy Noir.

A post I hated to end. Loved it!
One day remind me to tell you of the one and only time I had my fortune told.
Truthfully, I am always a little timid about certain subjects when it comes to blogging. I understand that fortune tellers are...um..well..not something to be spoken of ..or some such thing.
Anyway...I thought it was a cuter than cute story and very interesting.
You do know though that I could answer all of the questions you asked. :) Shhhh..don't tell.
Hugs,
Mona

Hmmm, does that mean if the cookie is NOT in three pieces that the answer is "yes"? :D

That's the way the cookie crumbles.

Perhaps the young lady wanted to be sure you got the bill before you left. They may have had problems with eat and run people....

I haven't heard much from Guy Noir lately. We just commented that we haven't heard much from Garrison lately, either. We were disappointed when he went political in the last election. He was much more appealing when he stayed in the past talking about Norwegian Bachelor Farmers. We just love listening to Garrison's stories.

All the best,
Lois

I think you should write all of the cookie messages as your's are specific and not abstract. Love them.

Well, what to make of that? Your cookie was in four pieces, so guess you have no fortune. But at least you would have if it would have been in three pieces. I always hate it when I get a message that is just an observation. When I crack open that cookie I want it to foretell something, whether it's good or bad. After all, it's a "fortune" cookie!

Call me if you decide to try the Andretti thing. I wanna watch. Don't try it with the truck, tho that EEP would have enough dust to obscure their vision while you were getting out of second gear. Could really mess up their radar guns!
