One of my favorite things to do with the Kids' Dad is to go out to eat, preferrably at a buffet restaurant, and just sit and talk the afternoon away. I would have to say the ultimate time was about three weeks ago at the Pizza Ranch where he had me laughing so hard I'd taken my glasses off because tears were running down my face and I was pleading for mercy because my stomach muscles were absolutely aching from laughing so hard. :D
Today we went to a Chinese restaurant (bet you hadn't guessed that from the title of the post!!!!), specifically the King House Buffet. :) The food was.... well there was a lot of variety and the types of food offered had changed a lot since the last time. The taste was really quite good, but it wasn't very hot, which was disappointing and probably not up to code. The problem might have been that the plates were really cold to start with. Didn't stop the visiting from being AWESOME though!!!!!
On the way out the door they have a bucket full of fortune cookies on the back of a statue of an Asian Elephant (trunk up of course) and we each grabbed one. Not a bad tasting cookie, either, which is nice. Sometimes a fortune cookie can be stale or just naff tasting. Blech. Not the place for a Chinese restaurant to skimp on as it is the last impression you will have of their establishment. The last thing a restaurant owner should want is a customer walking out the door trying to scrape the taste off their tongue with their teeth while saying, "Ewwwww that was just... nasty!" So, I cracked it open, nabbed the fortune and popped the first half in my mouth. YUM! And the little paper said....
You will be travelling and coming into a fortune.
SEE!!!!! I knew 2008 was going to be a fabulous year!!!! lol
The funny thing about fortune cookies... so often they tell a person what they want to hear about themselves, or offer general good advice. Others are just plain ridiculously inappropriate for the person receiving it. I rather miss the ones that used to say, Confucious say, 'He who farts in church, sits alone', or some other such wisdom of the Orient. But I suppose that would be as politically incorrect as children on the playground playing "Cowboys and Indians".
How about you? Have you had a fortune cookie yet this year? If not, what is the most memorable fortune cookie you've ever received????
