fun chow

So.  On occasion I get grocery store Chinese food for lunch.  Not so great, but really good if you know what I mean.  And whenever I get Chinese food, I look forward to busting open the fortune cookie at the end.  But not with this Chinese food.  I don’t know who their fortune cookie vendor is, but they are the absolute worst!  They aren’t even fortunes.  There is no “You will travel soon” or “Success is right around the corner” in these little cookies.  They are more “statement cookies.”  Things like, “You know many people.”  And I was getting awfully peeved about the un-fortunes until yesterday when I got this one:

You are a happy man.



Just in case you don’t know me (or do know me, but are still confused), I am not a man.

But oh, did I laugh.  And I have it next to my ergonomically positioned monitor at work.  To remind me that if I am a man, at least I am a happy man.

    HILARIOUS! I too have the pet peeve of unfortune cookies. I just bought a box of fortune cookies on amazon, thinking it would be a cool little extra surprise to throw in with orders. I didn’t even think about trying to investigate what kind of fortunes were in them until the box arrived. Sad to say, it’s all words of wisdom rather than fortunes. I’d rather they go out on a completely crazy limb, than be words of wisdom, meaning I’d rather read “today you will get slapped in the face with a fish” than “a bird in the hand is better than two in the bush”.

    Obviously the universe is letting you know that you were supposed to bring some of that lunch home to Mr. Man!

    I hate statement cookies. But I do have one statement I saved. It says “Art misunderstanding by calm, poise and balance.” I’m not sure what it means, but I’m sure it’s deep.

    I hope that the fortune cookie got it at least half right!
