Friday Funnies: Fortune Cookies

Do you like Chinese food? Chow mein, fried rice, egg foo young, sesame chicken, Kung Pao beef...I could eat these tasty dishes several times every week, except I'm afraid my waistline and wallet would complain loudly. (And perhaps Steve, who enjoys it but might not love it as much as I do.)

We like Chinese food and one of my daughters has collected those fortunes since she was young. She has a lot! lol. I once got one that said "You like Chinese food." Really?? I didn't know that. ;) I have 2 fortunes hanging at our computer desk. One for my husband who likes to fly RC planes that says "Flying is simple. Not hitting the ground is hard." And the other one suits me better..."You have a deep interest in all that is artistic." :)
