  1. On the back of fortune cookies you can learn Chinese! Thus it is an international Evangelical tool as well. Hey bonus!

    I know from first hand experience that these things can be spot on, as my wife and I went out for dinner….AGAIN! Her fortune cookie “learn Chinese” word was zuo cai, which means cook in Chinese! I said to her, “Hey, now there’s a word you don’t know in 2 languages! Her response was, “The only reason I have a kitchen is it came with the house!”

    Oh, and the fortune was, “What you will discover will be yourself.” Now that does seem to fit somehow…

    The next two times we went she got “kitchen,” which is chu fang and “refrigerator,” which is bing xiang. The corresponding fortunes were:

    ‘Discipline is the refining fire by which talent becomes ability.” with the kitchen.
    The problem though is that she isn’t much of a believer in these things. But there is hope as she began to see the light when the refrigerator one’s fortune read, “Desert CAN make you happy.”

    Now if those lucky numbers would just pay off…
