Two real life fortune cookie stories (they aren't incredible enough to be made up, so you might want to go on to the next posting and forget about this one):
1. we had a springer spaniel way back when and wanted to breed him and weren't having any luck in finding a mate for him. we gave him a fortune cookie, but i have to admit we opened it and read his fortune: you will soon meet a short brown stranger (absolutely true! no exaggeration, nor this next part) it was about two weeks later that he met his mate and had puppies shortly after.
2. i work in a service industry. our crews stopped at a chinese restaurant for lunch. we all opened and read our cookies. one fellow's cookie said: you have no future (i mean it. it really really said that) well, we got an emergency service call just after reading our cookies - i mean JUST got it - and he went out on the call and messed up and got fired . . . . none of us saw him after that (not as precise of a cookie, since i do think that he actually did have a future, but just not one that included the rest of us - i'm glad he got the cookie and not me. i guess that's human nature).
