First things first: Well, lookee who got quoted in the first paragraph of this Jpost story about intermarriage. Seems the author liked my piece about the GA.
Next: the Comedy for Koby event last night was great. Several more shows happening around the country so you should be sure to make it.

Seems that someone thought a laminated picture of her would be an interesting way to label a jerry can (canteen) which our groups use when on hikes. As always, I thought this would be an opportune moment for a cultural lesson. As always, these moments never turn out as expected. And here we go…

Co-worker: “Waht eez thet doo-eng here?”

Co-worker: “Ah seen-gehr?”

Co-worker: “Eez he deh one weeth deh beeg mouth?”
Me: “You could say that. Do you know what band he’s in?”
Other co-worker, eavesdropping: “Gahns and…”
Hand hits forehead. Loud cackling ensuses.
