My Terrible Fortune

Last night my wife Cat and I went out to a Chinese restaurant. So guess what my fortune cookie said?
"You will experience small success, especially in romance."
Which leaves me with two questions: 1. Does anyone out there know if "small" is Chinese for "great"? And 2: Am I the only person in the world who's ever gotten a negative fortune-cookie fortune? I've gotten a really weird fortune-cookie fortune before (which you can read about here), but I've never gotten one like this, where it's basically telling me that I'm a loser -- especially in romance. Has anyone else ever gotten, like, The Fortune Cookie of Doom?
I mean, who in heaven do you have to tick-off in order to have delivered to you a fortune cookie that tells you you're a loser??
