Chinese Fortune Cookie

Other · · 9 comments

Every so often the wife and I get to dine out. Or, in our case, graze the buffet line at the Chinese place. Most delish! Well, the heaps of food disappeared and the waitress brings the check and the fortune cookie. Now, I know most of the fortunes aren't really fortunes but, just dumb sayings but, when the wife opened hers' it read simply, "You will soon come into money" and mine said the usual proverb/nugget of Chinese wisdom, which I soon forgot about. Well, of course we both laughed at the ridiculous idea of the two of us coming into money. Nah, we can't afford to even play a two dollar lotto ticket. Our night out is a rare treat sometimes. Most nights it's sitting at home in front of the fake fireplace and talking about how much we wish we could get some work done on this place. I'm getting too old and crippled to do it myself and home re-modelers are sort of beyond our means. Then, out of the blue, we get a letter from the insurance company from where the wife used to work many long years ago. Her retirement policy had matured and they are sending a rather nice pay-out, and let's just say it's going to be more than enough to fix this place up and put aside something for retirement. The wife completely forgot she even had this policy. The contractor is showing up at 1pm.
