Chinese gender predictor

No, it's not some fancy tool used to predict what gender your baby is. It's much simpler than that. The Chinese gender predictor that Jason and I now believe in...the fortune cookie. A few months ago right after we found out we were expecting, Jason and I were at PF Chang's discussing our baby's gender over honey crispy chicken and fried rice. We open our fortune cookies and on the side that contains a translated word we see three tiny letters: B-O-Y. Jason kept that fortune with him.

And then today Jason and I met for lunch at Pei Wei and as we cracked into our fortune cookies we uncovered the following:
Now I'm not superstitious,  but we don't eat Chinese food too terribly often so our interaction with fortune cookies is minimal. I just think it's awfully suspicious. However, perhaps it's a bizarre Chinese custom not to reference "girl" in a fortune cookie, in which case our Chinese gender predictor is skewed. And I assure you if it is a girl we won't be disappointed. Just sayin' - it's weird.
