Fortune cookies: For the first time, I saw red printed fortune cookies at my favorite Chinese Food spot – Chef 28 (28th btw Park and Madison). It got me thinking, why, in all the numerous meals I’ve had there, I’ve never seen a red printed one. I’ve always gotten blue, at least from what I remember. I was with an old friend that also knows the spot. But even though I cracked open the red, I took from her the blue one. She was leaving it on the table anyway. In my mind, I identify my fortune as blue. The red one said something like this: Don’t argue with your elders. The blue one said: Pardon is the choicest flower of victory. Considering I certainly am over arguing with elders and know where that leads me, I liked the blue one. My lunch friend thinks I’m crazy for keeping the fortunes.
