How Weird is This?

My fortune cookie messages tend to be pretty hum-drum:

You like Chinese food.

You will soon take a very pleasant and successful trip.

Success is just around the corner.

Yada, yada, yada.

Well, my husband has gotten the following fortune, not once, but at least three times (he carries the little slips of paper around in his wallet as proof). He is also the only person I know who has ever gotten this fortune:

You are the greatest in the world.

You can imagine what this does for his self-esteem (which was never suffering to begin with).

  1. I’ve always wanted to write fortunes for fortune cookies. I wonder how I can get that job.

  2. My friends and I always add “in bed” to the end of the fortunes. Even if you get a bad fortune, it makes you laugh by adding in bed.

    LOL! That’s cute. My fortune cookies tend to be vague too. Though Mary got a really interesting one recently.

  4. We always add ‘in bed’ to the end as well. :)

  5. What I want to know is what fortune cookie box you’re eating out of! I want to be the greatest in the world!

  6. That’s too funny. Mine have always said something to the effect of, “Your life will be filled with unexpected twists and turns.” I like your husband’s fortune better!

  7. Actually, I’m a fan of “You like Chinese food.” Is that seriously a real fortune?

    Did your hubby add “in bed” to his? 😉

    But of course hubby has added ‘in bed’ to his fortune. How could he resist??
