Passover: Oy, You’ll Get Such a Headache!
Charlton Heston in Ten Commandments

Let My People Go (or you’ll get the biggest headache)!

When we were invited to a Passover Sedar this year my children needed to be reminded what it was all about (we don’t get invited to a sedar too often). My wife, trying to make it enticing wanted to tell them about the search for the afikomen, the traditional game of hiding of the matzah (ostensibly to keep the children engaged during the pre-dinner service). But in doing so my loving shiksa wife declared: “Girls you’ll get to hunt for the ibuprofen!”

Yes, as a child I remember when I thought the long Pesach Sedar was a headache. Well put my dear. but hopefully not this year.

Terrific pic of Heston!!!!

When first married, my episcopalian husband told me he knew our new neighbors were Jewish because they had a yarmalke on their door… Oy vey :-)

You and your children might enjoy the latest post on my blog, TheWorldIsYourLitterbox.blogspot.com. It’s the feline story of Purrover, or Passover as you humans call it.

Thanks everyone. I was about to tell this story when we got to the part in the Sedar where we hide the matzah but then found out everyone had read it already on my blog!

I guess I can only tell a story once.
