The Year of the Rooster

I heard a very funny story yesterday. My friend Tiffany was writing cards for the Chinese New Year (today) for professors from the Chinese Student Fellowship, and the guy who had composed what to write on them wanted to be 'creative and encouraging,' so he wanted to write: "God keep your spirit awake in the year of the cock." It took her a while to put her finger on what was wrong with this statement, but at last she figured out that it was SO wrong on many levels ... beginning with "the year of the cock." Anyway, it's the Chinese New Year, and I hope that God keeps your spirit awake with many spiritual blessings this year!
