Xin Nian Kuai Le! (Happy New Year)

It's the Chinese New Year and tonight I spent it up in Allentown (yeah, that's right) w/ Regina and Lisa. Regina's brother's girlfriend's family owns the House of Chen in downtown Allentown and Regina and her husband celebrate the Chinese New Year there every year. This year, since her husband was out of town, she brought some of the girls along to celebrate. Aside from the really long drive and ridiculous traffic, it was a fun evening. I think it was the first time I had Chinese since I have been back from China. The meal did not disappoint. I was stuffed by the time I left.

In case you are wondering, this year is the year of the Ox.

As w/ the end of any Chinese meal, we were given fortune cookies. I go ahead and break my cookie, and then pull out my fortune. I'm figuring it will say you will do well in your career, you will meet the love of your life, you will have good luck, etc. Instead it was something totally unexpected:

I totally lost it and started laughing hysterically. I had never seen a fortune like this. I tried to read it to everyone, but couldn't since I really hate the "c" word. I was practically pissing my pants I couldn't believe it said it. Then I saw the other fortunes and they talked about about getting screwed and such. Obviously, these were prank cookies meant for friends. Everyone at the table got a kick out of my reaction. I really didn't expect this fortune. Just thought I'd pass it on . . .
