    So, does anyone else here enjoy this little game? The way it goes is that you eat at a Chinese restaurant, and when you get your fortune cookie, you read your fortune, adding one of the two preposistional phrases at the end. My friends and I get a kick out of it, and it's a fun way to end a meal. My faves so far:

    Good luck comes in clusters.

    Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.

    You never give as much as you get.

    Beware the man that smiles too much.

    Anyone else care to add their two bits?

    One that I received:
    "You are the best."
    Now, depending on which phrase you add...[​IMG]

    i once got one that said (and i'm not kidding):
    "you like chinese food."
    i know it's not really relating to the 'bed/bathroom' thing, but i thought i'd share anyway. [​IMG]

    The best fortune I ever got was

    "Be kind to pigeons. One day a statue will be made of you."

    I use the "In Bed" one. People at my table get all giggly over how racy we all are for doing this. What can I say? It's Kansas.

    ...a varient of the "in bed" one, we all say "between the sheets" in my family. It's fun to see my normally prudish 60+ year old mom giggle over this.

    An old girlfriend and I once received a fortune with the phrase...."smile when you are ready"[in bed or in the bathroom]. We both got a real kick out of that at the time.
