So I guess I'm superstitious. Earlier this week I went out to dinner and had dodgy Chinese. I love a meal in a tacky Chinese restaurant. It reminds me of my childhood when "going out to dinner" meant the family piling in the car and driving 3 suburbs away for the local Chinese restaurant.
I ordered the traditional Lemon Chicken and Sweet and Sour pork. And it was vile. Judo and I didn't even make it through half of the food before we both looked at each other with that look of "I'm going to be sick". There was more deep fried batter on the chicken than chicken itself... and it only tasted of oil. So anyway, here's my dilemma:
What am I supposed to do with the fortune cookie? You see, I've not had the most fortunate of fortnights, so I don't want to tempt fate by opening the cookie. It's still sitting there on my cupboard taunting me. My question is: Is the fortune valid only from the point when you crack it open, or is it your fortune, no mater what, from the moment you take possession of it, open or not?
All I can think about is an episode of Rocko's Modern Life where Filbert opens his fortune cookie and it reads "Bad luck and misfortune will infest your pathetic soul for all eternity".
