Bilingual fortunes at Golden Coast
  • Bilingual fortunes at Golden Coast

As about the same moment I registered two Central American diners at the Golden Coast buffet, the youth at our table cracked open fortune cookies. And, sign of the times, they're in Spanish on one side, English on the other.

The fortunes themselves aren't like the inscrutable eastern fortunes of the past. They're more like sayings: "Out of sight, out of mind" and "Don't worry, be happy."

No future tense, easier to translate.
