At the end of our meal, of course, we received the requisite fortune cookies.
I always wave my hand over them, waiting for one to call to me. Jeremy shuffles them and then picks, which he did that night before anyone could choose any other tactics.
This then led to a debate, as Tom believes in the "Proximity Theory": if it's closest to you and/or pointing to you, that fortune cookie is yours.
So Jeremy shuffled the cookies back into their original order, as he hadn't done much rearranging and could still remember which cookie had started where. And so we selected according to Tom's rule. And here's how they worked out:
Jeremy: "Work is either fun or drudgery. It depends on your attitude." Jeremy admits to having virtually no work ethic unless he enjoys the task or the company he's keeping, so this was perfect!
Tom: "You have a curious smile and a mysterious nature." Also perfect, as 'tis very true on both counts.
And then there was mine: "You are the crispy noodle in the vegetarian salad of life."
