Good Fortune From A Cookie

Me: "Adventure can be real happiness."
Lucky numbers: 12, 14, 18, 22, 28, 38

Grandpère: "You may be hungry soon: order a takeout now."
Lucky numbers: 11, 24, 25, 37, 39, 41

Grandpère's fortune is so very true and right. He thinks about food much of the day. Immediately after finishing one meal, he is thinking of the next. He shoulda done what they said.

Shall we rush out to buy lottery tickets?

  1. Did you and Diana participate in the Krewe of Barkus yesterday?

  2. No, Lapin, not this year, but maybe one day. A one-eyed dog would be a novelty, don't you think. What about a one-eyed queen of Barkus?

  3. Grandpère must be some kind of soul kin to me. My ex and I used to joke about my approach to food:

    What is the most important meal of the day?
    The next one!

  4. Grandpère must be some kind of soul kin to me.

    Sniff-sniff (wipes away tear). I'm hurt, Paul. I thought you and I were twins separated at birth.

  5. I rather think we are the terrible troublesome twins separated at birth, lucky for the world. Imagine the mischief we could get into if we combined forces.

    And if we are twins separated at birth it explains why GP would be a soul kin to me and a soul mate to you. With three such grand spirits there is enough of each of us to go around.

    Ya think?

  7. Mimi, I have the power to interpret fortune cookies and you seem to have grabbed the wrong end of the stick here.

    Basically, what the gods at the top of the banyan tree are telling you is that you are going to run off and have a passionate affair with a pirate (as in ho, ho, ho, my hearties). Grandpere is being told that he should start looking for a younger woman, who can cook red beans and rice real good, to replace you and that he should do this sooner rather than later so that there is no gap in his eating regime.

    It's basically Pharaoh being told to store up grain during the good years, all over again. But, then, there's nothing new under the sun you floosie.

  8. I am still pondering my online fortune cookie:
    An avocado refrigerator would look good on your resume. I assume it means the color avocado which was so popular years ago (we had one!) or does it mean a refrigerator dedicated to avocados - although we don't keep them there until after they are made into guacamole. hmmmmm......

  9. MadPriest, what stick? I don't have a stick.

    We will be having an adventure in the next few days, and there could be pirates around, so OCYCBR.

    Ann, what I think your fortune means is that you must include on your resume that you once owned an avocado refrigerator - whether you did or not. What's one little white lie?

    I've never owned an avocado refrigerator, but I have owned an avocado stove. It was in the house when we bought it.

  10. You should find a stick and whack MP with it.

    I'm hungry now. What did you guys order? I'm partial to those little eggplants with garlic sauce, but Mr. PJ and PJ jr. prefer General Tso's Chicken.

    Now I'm really, really hungry. I know it's only 11:15, but I just ran 3 miles on a treadmill, so I deserve Chinese food.

  11. PJ, it was a buffet, and I loaded my plate with far too many of the Chinese savories, but I managed to eat it all anyway.

    I had a noodle dish, a rice dish, chicken strips, an egg roll, and servings of other dishes, too, which I can't remember. Oh, yes. A shrimp dish. TMF, if you know what I mean.

  12. Oh I know what you mean. Indeed. :)

  13. Hey, Paul and Mimi: I want to be in your in-group!

    (just teasing; I know that we all are.)

  14. Kirstin, we are inclusive. Welcome to the in group.
