Ever since my husband and I decided to go to Las Vegas for a friend’s birthday, we’ve been on a healthy diet where we’re supposed to eat healthy and workout, but are allowing ourselves one cheat meal a week. This week, the cheat meal was Panda Express, an idea thought of by yours truly.
There’s something about that orange chicken that satisfies that need for unhealthy Chinese food. After finishing my Panda Bowl of orange chicken and fried rice, I was not disappointed. I was completely satiated and happy.
The meal came with a fortune cookie. Unfortunately, I feel like the quality of ‘fortunes’ in fortune cookies have declined. Like, they’re not even fortunes anymore, but advice on how to be a good person, which is all great and dandy, but people eat fortune cookies to get fortunes, not advice. Before, fortune cookies would say things like “You will inherit a big amount of money”. Whether or not it really was going to happen is a different story, but I know reading them made my day a little bit better and I hung on to some of those paper fortunes with the hope that they might come true.
Now, I just toss these fortune advises away.
