What are the Odds?

Lloyd and I went out for Chinese food today to a little place I hadn't been to in years.  The food was good, as usual, but when the fortune cookies were presented and opened, this is what we found.

We each got the same fortune!  What are the odds of that happening?  Never, in all my years of eating Chinese food and opening cookies, have I ever got the same fortune as someone else.

The fortune, too, is a bit off.  I'm retired so I don't know what I can be promoted to from here.  Lloyd is CEO of his organization, set to retire next year, so I'm not sure that a promotion is possible, or wanted, for him.

The six numbers on the back of the fortunes were different though.  Maybe I should use them to buy a Lotto 649 ticket!

On another topic altogether, I'm having problems commenting on a couple of blogs that I follow and have no other way to let these ladies know that I'm still here and trying every day to comment on their blogs.  So, Jan at Serenity, Serendipity and Stitches as well as Taryterre and Scooter Lady Rides Again, don't give up on me.  I'll keep trying till a comment goes through.

Ohhh, Chinese sounds good. Haven't had it in ages. I think you should play the lottery


Play the lottery. Been having the same problem with comments on Blogger, disappearing. I found if I sign in to my blog, get on my blog's dashboard and comment on other peoples blogs from there, it works. Good Luck.

With odds like that I'd try the lottery too. It seems like the commenting problems are sporadic. Most of the time if I retry I'll manage to be able to get one on but not always.

I've been having trouble leaving comments too so let's hope this time. Good luck with your lotto numbers! Have to ask you where your favorite Chinese place is. Oh maybe Panda Hut? Think I recognize the label on the fortune cookies?
Here's hoping this goes!
