So today I received a package from my "Boyfriend in Brown" AKA the UPS Man. It was a box that had the 1-800-FLOWERS logo, as well as the 1-800-BASKETS logo on it. I am not currently working with either company, so needless to say, I was totally puzzled.
I opened the box, and there was no note, no card, nothing. Just a HUGE purple Chinese Take-Out style box. Strange, huh? Inside of the box was a gigantic, beautifully wrapped, chocolate and candy coated fortune cookie! I mean, this baby is huge! I had never seen anything like it before in my life!
Of course, I thought it was too darn pretty to crack open, so I started googling sweepstakes thinking maybe I won it while entering sweeps at 3:00AM while half-asleep. After all, I have never seen such a gorgeous fortune cookie, so I would have HAD to be severely sleep deprived, as I often am, or I would have remembered entering to win one, right? Of course, my Google search proved to be fruitless. Back to the drawing board.
Then I started calling everyone I know asking if they had sent me something really odd...I called my grandparents up in Ohio, my sister-in-law in Texas, and every other person I could think of that would have my address. Needless to say, I was going bonkers! I knew it wasn't my husband for 2 reasons: While he is wonderful, he is probably the most unromantic man in the world and this wouldn't even have occurred to him. And I manage our finances so I would have seen a charge show up in our statements, which I check daily.
Finally, I was able to literally fish the fortune out of the cookie. Here's what it said:
