Know how I know this?
I opened a fortune cookie the other day and this is what it said:
“God not only will listen to your prayers, but also will make them come true”
Hardly! It felt like I was eating a communion fortune wafer.
Confucius say what? I think i liked my chinese take-out better when it didn’t embrace a particular religion. Chinese is my exotic food of choice and now it’s becoming too Westernized. Next thing you know, they’ll be putting french fries on their menus. Or Coke, even.
It’s kind of ironic though, don’t you think, that chinese is the one food we will order with no clue what it actually is. House Special Chow Mai Fun anyone? Moo Goo Gai Pan? Goo Goo Doll? Roses really smell like Pu Pu Pu Platter (when it’s for 2 ).
We may take chances with chinese food but not with religion. Religion doesn’t offer free delivery, though salvation now comes in my fortune cookie.
Still, I’m not one to look a gift God in the mouth. I’m gonna play the lottery with those lucky numbers listed below the message. Good fortune is mine for $4.99!
