Fortune Cookies


Last weekend, we had dinner at a Chinese place with some of my in-laws. As usual, my son and I were left at one end of the table to entertain ourselves while the rest of the group chatted with each other in Thai.

Fortune cookies

You’re not going to like it.’ ‘You will fulminate in 10 seconds.'”

Fulminate?!” I said.

“It was one of my vocabulary words.”
