Afterward, I enjoyed a tasty recovery
feast meal at the best, most authentic Chinese restaurant in Boulder. You know you are eating extra good Chinese when you see that you are one of the few white people dining in the restaurant. I might have overdone it on the Dan Dan noodles (or maybe it was the twice cooked pork) but ohmygod it was so good.
After dinner, I read my fortune and then ate my cookie. Dan reminded me my fortune would never come true because I read it before I ate the cookie. I looked at him like “What!?” and he said that every single time we have Chinese, I open my fortune in the wrong order, he points it out, and I make a “What you talkin’ about Willis” face. I have no recollection of any of this. Hence, (according to Dan) I make the perplexed face every single time.
So what about you? Do you subscribe to the bizarre practice of first eating the cookie, then reading the fortune second? Have you even ever heard of this?
