On a Chinese Fortune

Nothing says an urban clime like a hole-in-the-wall Chinese restaurant with a cheap lunch special within walking distance of the office.

Orange chicken. Niiiiiiicccccccccce.

I got a fortune, too —

🙂 You will have good luck and overcome many hardships. 🙂

Okay, it’s so vague as to be on the point of uselessness, but there’s wisdom in those Chinese words. Well, actually, they probably weren’t written by anyone Chinese. It could have been Homer Simpson.


Optimism! Luck! :cheers:

Sadly, the lottery numbers on the back of the fortune are next to useless. Powerball doesn’t go up to 89.
