      the thing to remember about fortune cookies is that they are extraordinarily cheep. the translations are often wrong/gibberish. Also, there are at least two flavors of chinese. and I seem to recall their being 4. Cantonese and Mandarin for example.
      No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

          Fortune Cookie was accurate. Maybe she thought you were calling her a Pumpkin?

              One night about 10-years ago we went out to our favorite Chinese restaurant with my nephew. When the waitress came he ordered in perfect Chinese. After she left I asked him when he learned Chinese as he took French in High School. He told me he decided China was going to play a major role in our economy some day so he took it while in Medical School. A few years later he met a Korean girl who came to the US for school and they got married. He now speaks a bunch of different languages including several dialects of both Chinese and Korean.

                Same for my little brother, he started Chinese Manderin while in high school, and is still taking it while in college. Sadly, years ago, I went through the same school system he did, however before all the reforms. My only choices were Spanish (Which everyone took) or French (Which I was forced into due to lack of seats for the former).

                  I think thats a New england thing with the Spanish and French.

                  I went to Catholic school, my choice was take French, or get smacked in the head.
                  Well, I took French, but still got smacked in the head

                    The Chinese restaurant where I used to live would give a "dirty" fortune cookie if you asked them too to an unsuspecting person in your party.

                    Alot of surprises and fun.

                      LOL-It wouldn't work for me as I always give my fortune cookies away anyways. I have a new Chinese restaurant by my home in California that serves a hand made fortune cookie with half of it dipped in chocolate. It looks tempting but I still offer mine to others.
