Great Fortune Cookie Wisdom

Ordered take-out from Crouching Tiger, as it was exceedingly hot, and self was quite out of breath after hauling around 20 buckets of water for the plants.  The Man called twice, both times sounding extremely upset because he had been asked to stay late.

“I might have to stay until 9!” he exclaimed.

Self decided that meant he would probably be home at 7 p.m.

And, you know something, dear blog readers?  Self was absolutely correct!  Shortly after (or before) 7 p.m., The Man walked in the door.  Self doesn’t know about you, but coming home at 7 p.m. does not qualify as “late.” 8 or 9 or 10 p.m. can be considered late.  Not 7 p.m.  In the two hours’ grace provided by this “late” arrival, self managed to:


Txt son that she would be seeing him shortly (No answering txt from son)

Feed The Ancient One.

Order take-out.

Of course, since Crouching Tiger is a Chinese restaurant, included with the cartons of mu-shu pork and lamb with scallions were two fortune cookies.  Self put one on The Man’s desk, and opened the other one.  It said:

You will step on the soil of many countries in your lifetime.


Stay tuned.
