"Old situations, new complications...something happened on the way..."

A funny thing happened a few days ago.

We were visiting my son this week. As he and I were standing in line in a restaurant on 33rd Street, waiting to pay for some take-out, I was asking him some questions about his relationships and those of his friends.

I then asked "are Moishie and Berl dating?"

Being a little hard of hearing, I may have spoken a bit too loud.

The gentleman in front of us turned around, and with a look of utter astonishment looked us up and down, and left the line shaking his head.

I burst out laughing. This was my first experience.

"Something appealing, something appalling, something for everyone: a comedy tonight."

Be well.

Love it! Hilarious. And good for you for laughing it off and being in on the joke with your son. Blessings on you both. And shabbat shalom!

Just too funny. And just too wonderful that you can share in your son's life.
