Sofia's Restaurant Now Serving...

Sofia's restaurant is now serving fortune cookies. As you can easily see from the picture, she also serves eggs, bacon, grapefruit juice, pancakes, peanut butter and jelly, and what looks like the letter "U" and green and red thingies.

She did invite some of the neighbors in to eat but unfortunately they had already made other dining arrangements.

My little entrepreneur took it all in stride, making up for the loss in business by charging her brother for the fortune cookies he ate while she was out drumming up business.

This turned out to be 10 cookies at $10 apiece. He negotiated a 10% family discount, but still owes her $90. He's applying for a job as manager to pay off his debt. Sofia's thinking about it while she's opening up a fortune cookie herself.

The Chinese word on the paper is "Lao ban", or boss. How ironic is that? I told her the cookie says she should hire him.

I thought one of the fortunes her brother found in his cookie was worth mentioning:

"A man's dreams are an index to his greatness."

DREAM BIG, CHILDREN. DREAM BIG! - We don't stop dreaming because we get old. We get old because we stop dreaming!
