Fortune Cookie Blunders

It feels like a Sunday to me, does it feel that way to you guys? Maybe it's because my company left so the house is back to being just Hubby and I so everything is pretty quiet and calm. I honestly LOVE when family comes in because they live about five hours away ( his ) and fourteen hours away ( mine ) so when the chance pops up for us to be together we like to take it and enjoy it. I honestly get along with (most of ) his family so you won't find any horrible mother-in-law stories here...mine is an awesome one.

My father-in-law is one of the sweetest men in the world, he would give you the shirt off his back, and would do anything he could to help you if you needed it. He is also a pretty big redneck and has two bad ears....this of course causes a ton of hilarious happenings. I swear he is related to Si from Duck Dynasty. The following took place at our local chinese food place at the end of dinner, while we were opening fortune cookies.

Hubby: " You will know the heardings of your accomplishments will be fruitiful."
Hubby then gave a confused look at we all laughed.
Mom-in-law: " Patiences woman are of joyous beholdings"
Me: " huh....I think that one's a compliment..." 
Table laughing again.
Me: " You will soon have a new line of work.....well...hallelujah!"
Friend: " I picked that one for you....you're welcome." (all smugly)
Friend: " Travels to lands are bounty....?"
Me: "They need to hire an editor."
Whole table cracks up
Father-in-law then speaks
" You know...I've never seen them with this many grammerical errors." (ps- he totally emphasized the -erical part)

Needless to say we all had tears in our eyes from laughing so hard and do not hire my father-in-law to be a fortune cookie editor.


  1. At our last work lunch my boss got one that said, "Enjoy yourself while you can." YIKES!!! Mine said I should expect prosperity. I asked him if I was in his will. hehe.
