Hello, new readers, and thanks for stopping by. Good times as always in the War Zone with the recent beach post being published on Ynet this week. I sent it to my co-workers in the department, continuing the charade that they have any interest in anything I write in English. Good people, they just don’t like reading a foreign language. I can’t really blame them; after all, here’s my impression of me after I receive a Hebrew email sent to the entire company: DELETE. Neeeeeext!!!!
Moving on….so earlier today, I try to get a co-worker’s attention only to realize she’s on the phone. I do the international symbol for “call me”, putting my hand up to my ear and mouthing these two words. Approximately 3.2 seconds later, I thought “can she really read lips in English?” I could have mouthed “Debbie Gibson likes techina in June”, it wouldn’t have made a difference. Good thing for hand motions.
Speaking of verbal and non-verbal communication…
(Five minutes later…)
Dammit, I just got one paragraph into some thoughts about Israeli Taboo before Googling this blog and realizing I covered this topic last October. Well, since it’s on my mind, feel free to go check it out yourself. I feel dishonest copying and pasting old content. What’s the blog protocol? (Ech omrim “blog protocol”?)
Lastly, where in the world is kibinimat? Someone told me to go there today. I spent five minutes staring at a map and couldn’t find it.
