We had Chinese Food last week and when I cracked open the cookie, the "fortune" fell out. It was perhaps one of the strangest ones I'd ever gotten.
Birds are entangled by their feet and men by their tongues :)
What's that all about? I've never seen a bird trip over its own foot. Even Flamingos that are all legs and feet seem as graceful as ballet dancers.
Well, our rooster Zeus stumbles around when he walks but that's because his spurs are too long and they make it difficult for him to maneuver.
And, men by their tongues. Now that's more believable than the other.
I Googled the saying to see if it was actually a Chinese saying and apparently it was. And it means something like birds do better on their wings, and men sometimes get trapped by their tongues.
But what does that mean and why did the Universe feel that I needed that particular message at this point in my life.
Somebody help me here. Was somebody sniffing too much ginseng or simply having fun with us wacky Americans?
