WordPress is being OPPRESSIVE and I am not going to sit down and take it, so here is the rejected post, the only way I can slip it through.
Awesome post…Ben Yehuda, why do you spell kiddush like Quiddich? Sorry I just have to ask even though I can’t spell for my life generally.
My first thoughts were that divorce announcements at a seder seem REALLY inappropriate until I realized that there are few things more appropriate. That is personal freedom (my thoughts on divorce are not this one sided and I am shelving them for the time being.)
Ok, yo, Hesh, I’m really glad that you finally had a good seder. It’s always good to have a seder upgrade and btw you know you now have to post a video of your fire sounds. I think my friend’s husband (his name is Gedaliah) does the best ones, personally, but you can try to beat it.
Inflatable alligators and pineapple sound rocking. YAY for shaking things up!
BTW making aliyah forever and keeping one day of chag is so the way to go. People end up getting more into it because in chu’l people spend the first night being exhausted and don’t get into it as much since they can always do it better the second night. And then the second night it’s boring because of the whole we-just-did-this deja vu thing going on. Here we get to give it all we’ve got and BOOM it works.
My family used to do pesach roadtrips. We’d arrive at our destination the morning of seder, and rush through so fast that we were done by 10:30 because after 24 hours in the car, we were wiped. HATED IT. Not as much as the 7 or 8 different kiddushes we had to sit through when I was younger (cousins made each adult male make their own) and the only person who used to kick me under the table was my cousin. Then I’d get sent to his room, he’d get sent to his brother’s room, and we’d each cry ourselves to sleep while tantruming about how life is unfair. And we’d wake up in time for the end of maggid and have to join for the rest of the seder when we would fight again.
Life was more unfair for me. I told said cousin I was asking for Sega Genesis for my afikoman present and he liked the idea so he asked too. Only his family was richer than mine, so he got it and I didn’t and he didn’t let me play. He sent me a letter gloating instead.
Why did I just tell you all that? Oh right – because…
The injustices of pesach were many.
Welcome to the future.
