Fortune Cookies

Mary brought home Chinese order-out, using a gift card she received for Christmas. After finishing our meal, I cracked open a fortune cookie and read my ‘fortune,’ while crunching on the broken cookie-shell.

It reads: “Your ability for accomplishment will follow with success.” Not satisfied in either my appetite or for a better ‘fortune,’ I broke open a second cookie and proceeded to munch away.

It reads: “Your kind spirit will lead to many new friendships.” Though, I still was not satisfied, I refused to have a third.

I’m afraid two fortune cookies and two ambiguous fortunes are my limit.
