There’s already this other thread about fortune cookies where I considered posting this, but the mood over there seems to be more humorous and I didn’t want to spoil it.
I was coming home from a discouraging visit with my parents, at the end of which my dad told me I was no longer welcome in his house due to theological differences he and I had. And he said he didn’t care if he never saw me again.
So I was eating at this Chinese buffet and feeling pretty lousy, so you can imagine how I felt when I opened the fortune cookie and it said, “You will grow up to be just like your father”.
I almost lost it right there.
