He ended up dead and penniless because the cookie dough cost so much!

He’s wife ended up becoming the first fortuneteller to earn money because she didn’t know how to cook and bake.

I was so disappointed the other day after visiting a Chinese restaurant I frequent on a regular basis. They forgot to give me my fortune cookie, I still feel devastated now that I have seen this

My wife saves them and has a large jar which she hope we will read when she dies. ??? I would suspect she has close to 1000 by now. We like Chinese food and go out for a Chinese dinner about once a week.
