Fortune Telling

I forgot to post about this last week. So, let me get it done before I truly forget all about it. And it's too good to forget.

Fred, Vitt, Mak, and myself went to eat at a Japanese steak house last week. We wanted to do something special with the two of them since Paige was off doing her own special thing. It's a cool place that keeps Vitt totally enthralled with the "cooking in your face" deal. He is every Japanese chef's dream customer. He claps and yells and begs for them to "DO IT AGAIN! DO IT AGAIN!"

We always look forward to getting our fortune cookies at the end of the meal. Mine was so so and Makenna's wasn't all that snazzy either.

Then we read Fred and Vitt's. Fred's was kind of cool and I thought worth posting. It reads: This year your highest priority will be your family. How nice is that? Now, I've saved these tiny scraps of paper and will now be forwarding Fred's to his Commanding Officer so homey will know that the family comes first this year. NOT the Navy. Yeah, I don't think it'll go over that well, either.

Are you ready for Vitt's fortune? I almost had a heart attack when I read it. I immediately wanted to shred it, eat it, just DESTROY it. Then I remembered you, Internets, and knew I had to save it to share with you.

It says:

Now is the time to set your sights high and go for it.

See where the chest pains come in now? I can imagine at least 50 different scenarios that this can apply to and none of them lets us off with less than a visit to our local E.R.

Anyone out there know how to counteract a fortune?

I'm sitting here rolling because we always add "...in bed" after we read our fortunes. Did y'all do that?? Always seems to make things a wee bit funnier!! I'll never forget one night out with the whole family (Jer's side) where this all got started. My fortune "You're going to have the best week of your life." Jer's mom cracks up..."HA HA HA...IN BED!" I about died and then proceeded to crawl under the table!

Oh yeah, Em, I've heard that before but we kinda can't do that with the minors around. They get this really cute puzzled look on their face and go "HUH?"

My friends and I totally do the "in bed" thing with our furtunes too!

Vitt isn't old enough to read yet, so you should have made up something different like, "listen to your mommy and daddy."

That's great that your husband is in the Navy. Sorry you had to leave S.C. though. The license plate thing sounds unbelieveable.
Anyway, 3 year old girls were way fun, but little boys scare me. God knew this about me and gave me girls. Good luck!
I so have try the "in bed" thing when the girls are around. I'd never heard that before!
