A little early bit of Kung Hei Fat Choi*

I got a fortune cookie today and the little piece of paper said, "If you bring up what is inside of you, what is inside of you will save you."

Nice little gem of complete and utter nonsense. Reminds me of some favorite lines from the movie "Mystery Men."

"If you can balance a tack hammer on your head, you can head off a balanced attack."

and "If you doubt your powers, you give power to your doubts."

But what I really wanted to share with you is that when I read my fortune cookie fortune, I read until the comma, "If you bring up what is inside of you," and before I read the rest of the fortune, I completed the sentence in my own words this way: "you are puking."

Hayley and Matt thought it was funny.

*First person who tells me what this is and why it's a little early for me to say it gets 25 points and a steamed dumpling.

Happy New Year to you, too.

That is a weird "fortune" and quite nonsensical. I thought the same thing when I read the first part of your fortune. It's "fresh" on my mind since I've been up to my elbows in puke lately. Even with that thought I'm still craving Chinese food now. Thanks a lot.

I googled your title and found what Marta alrady said it was, except it's Happy CHINESE New Year. So do I get the 25 points for being more specific...LOL.

Your fortune reminded me of vomiting too. I guess we are a literal minded folk.
