At a recent dinner party, fortune cookies were served with coffee, leading one of the guests to share a great game that may not exactly provide hours of fun, but will make you giggle for as long as it takes to consume the fortune cookies. Hereâs the deal: each guest reads out the contents of his or her fortune as revealed by the cookie, but ends it with the words âin the bedroomâ. It never fails to improve the fortune.
See for yourself how much fun it can be:
There is an âexception to every ruleâ and most people think they are itâ¦ in the bedroom.
You are in good hands this eveningâ¦ in the bedroom.
You are demonstrative with those you loveâ¦ in the bedroom.
Be on the alert for new opportunityâ¦ in the bedroom.
My personal favourite âbad jokeâ whenever consuming fortune cookies with friends, is to read the declaration from the other side of the slip of paper. It develops a far more abject meaning when given the âin the bedroomâ treatment:
This insert has a protective coatingâ¦ in the bedroom.
I have an aunt who runs an evangelical business that deals in âscripture cookiesâ (this isnât the nun who I refer to as âThe Auntie Christâ, but a different one). They are fortune cookies in every way, apart from the actual fortune. Instead of having vaguely positive non-specific statements that may be easily construed as being mystical and spiritual, they carry specific verses from the bible. I donât have any handy to quote from right now, but Iâm sure they'll work just as readily. Iâll choose some random, but obvious biblical verses for your consideration:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was made fleshâ¦ in the bedroom
Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earthâ¦ in the bedroom.
The Ten Commandments take on a particularly lurid hue:
I am the Lord thy God; thou shall not worship false gods before meâ¦ in the bedroom.
Honour thy father and thy motherâ¦ in the bedroom.
Thou shall not covet thy neighbourâs assâ¦ in the bedroom.
As usual, after a strong opening and a little bit of development, I have no idea how to end this entry, so Iâm just gonna pick the first bold quote that comes to mind:
I am who I amâ¦ in the bedroom.
Add your own if you wish.
