I always thought it was them now I find it was always Y-O-U. For you need someone to project your anger, frustration and disappointment on, and previously it was an individual with some culpability. It was a brilliant excuse at first as the initial victims had many more faults than the ones you’re projector on now. Years went by without me discovering what was going on until the projector was put right in my face. I’m far from perfect but the light is way too bright for anyone to bear. G-D willing your future will include a picture of yourself and then things can really improve in all our life’s.
Anyone who knows me would probably contend I’m liberal in one area Covid restrictions but Simchat Torah is putting a conservative tone to observing this holiday. For, on this holiday one is extremely close to others in terms of dancing around and switching the Torah which means a mask mandate might be close to my face at least during this part of the celebration. I believe that 6 feet of distance will be broken over and over again with hands and body parts touching as well. It’s true I have the Covid Vaccine but I don’t want to have to take a day off in my bed afterward.
Did you ever want to be someone you’re not well then let your phone do the work? For if nobody can see who is speaking from the other side then the person can be Tom Cruise, Opray Winfrey, Donald Trump, or the Pope. Of course, the person on the other side must not actually know your number and be a bit naive but if you’re a good actor (a really good one) you might just pull it off. I’m not recommending you do this for a living or anything but for a quick fun escape maybe it’s worth a ring.
FOOTNOTE- I believe before the phone dial goes dead you tell the other person that it’s a joke.
WARNING- A different workload
Today is Sukkot a Jewish Holiday where we are to recognize that G-D protects our walls and as such, we create a primitive to dwell in over a 7 day period; that is at least according to my interpretation. One of the requirements for this holiday is not to do LABORIOUS “work” which gives me G-D willing some leeway. How I define that as work that is I’m not permitted to do work above my normal “pay grade”. So I will still go to work and fulfill all my basic “chores” but not seek extra work that I normally strive to do. Trust me this is harder than you might think for a person like me not in the sense of lifting but one who has a type “A” personality. I’m already feeling guilty for arriving at work after Shul. Balancing my secular work and the one of faith is something that is very confusing but adding the word “LABORIOUS” makes it a bit easier for me to pull.
P.S.- Laborious Work= requiring much work, exertion, or perseverance: a laborious undertaking. characterized by or requiring extreme care and much attention to detail: laborious research. characterized by or exhibiting excessive effort, dullness, and lack of spontaneity; labored: a strained, laborious plot
I decided to eat in NYC without traveling that far as I visited Nova Kitchen. This restaurant had all the ambiance, style, and pricing of any upscale NYC restaurant within a manageable distance. The food was served in an artistic fashion as was the look of the entire restaurant. Due to NYC style pricing, I stayed with the appetizer selections, cocktails, and of course a selection or two from the dessert menu. The menu consisted of many items you would see on the island of Manhattan as well. Yet the only food that dominated my taste buds was the mushroom ravioli. The truth is in the end though as I wouldn’t go to NYC to visit a restaurant every day the Nova Kitchen appears to be a similar destination.
**1/2 – You can add an extra star for the ambiance and to be honest, I might have to add any extra star once I delve into my wallet and grab the main course.
