Innovation

The Chinese Take-Out Container is actually an American innovation influenced by origami. Frederick Weeks Wilcox patented  the paper pail.  It's a single piece of cardstock folded and secured with a wire to create a leakproof container. When the wire is removed, the flat interior creates a surface from which you can eat.

Energy

Energy causes things to happen. Energy can be found in a variety of sources, including Chinese Take-Out. Some foods have different energies, either hot or cold. Yang foods such as chili peppers, deep fried wontons or beef jerky are considered hot, while watermelon, cantelope and green tea are cool foods.  No matter if it's hot or cold, energy is the ability to do the work.

Enthusiasm

Everyone gets excited about the fortune cookie and hoping to get this best fortune.  This is one of my favorite fortunes:

 

"Age may wrinkle the face, but lack of enthusiasm wrinkles the soul."
