Me: "Ooh! There are two fortunes in this fortune cookie!"
Mr E Man: "Mine too!"
(Munch munch, rustle rustle)
Me: "OH! I don't think mine are very compatible with each other!"
Mr E Man: "Heh - same here!"
Me: "Why, what did you get?"
Mr E Man:
Me: "NO FUCKING WAY!"
Mr E Man: "Why, what did you get?"
ETA: I just remembered another fortune cookie story! I was once at a Chinese restaurant in San Francisco with an international assortment of fellow backpackers who were staying at the same hostel as me. One guy - I think he was from Switzerland, definitely somewhere in the Alps - got a fortune cookie that said he would see a long-lost friend very soon. Literally two minutes later, as we left the restaurant, he ran into an old school friend from the same mountain village. They hadn't seen each other for years, and each had no idea the other was in the US that summer.
