Okay so this one isn't that complicated but it has proven to be pretty memorable. It's just what I first thought when looking at the characters.
"if - in the event that" - 如果 - rú guŏ
I 'read' this starting with the left half of first character. That looks like 女 -nǚ - "woman". The box next to it is like 口 - kŏu - "mouth".
The second character is 果, which at the time I thought 'well that could be anything' meaning I had no idea what it was.
So if you're following me, I read it like
"IF a woman opens her mouth, well, anything could come out." (as in, I have no idea what she'll say)
