When we have to change our clocks for "daylight savings" time.
Due to an illness we've had quite a bit of contact with my friend's small town Mom. Somehow it suddenly dawned on her that my wife is Jewish and she's become fixated. Must've spotted the horns sticking through her hair. Rather than have the good sense to avoid a topic with which she is unfamiliar and one that might be a tad touchy why not just bull forward?
I think we're on our third conversation about being kosher (she's not) . Last go around the other day she handed my wife a loaf of Jewish Rye bread and an Easter Bunny decoration. "I hope this isn't offensive to you but its sooooo cute"
Well, OK. We're cosmopolitan types and let this roll off - but change the scenario to us being black or LBGTQ and her saying something similar, well, you better go find a celebrity of the correct flavor to apologize to and then get on your apology tour.
As it went the bread was actually quite tasty. As a recovered Catholic I am still vague about the whole lepus thing and the connection to the big candy basket I used to get and the guy who might or might not be in Schrodinger's Cave. We'll keep the decoration around until Easter or when her visits stop, whichever comes first. Then I'll hang it by the cow bell down on the BB gun range.
We're going to get her a mezuzah and insist she put it by her door.
Could be a great idea, especially if Covid is a sign of God's wrath.
Mezuzah: The Inside Story
And even if it isn't, it can't hurt.
That might be the origin but the daily in-use interpretation of a mezuzah is broader. Meaning, no it's not really Wrath of God and First Born and all that.
We do live near a farm though and I could easily get enough lamb's blood schmeer on the front door next time this woman comes to visit. I told my wife she should've made up some freaky chant and collapsed to the floor twitching when handed that Easter Bunny
An Easter decoration with the bunnies arse at the center of it all, really?...Sorry, just never saw something like that, usually you see a cute bunny face smiling at you, not the backside...
it speaks perfectly to the whole situation though, doesn't it?
Explain something to me. You are a father who is footing the bills for your son and his wife and then your son’s wife says your are possibly a “racist”?? No wonder people think the British Royal Family is one big scam. I would banish the whole lot of them.
Ah, they're cool. Love the pageantry and history. London in particular is on my bucket list.
What the Royals really need is better handlers.
I hate it when my oldest son's history teacher contacted me to to tell me his history report was to negitve.
My argument was it was 100% factual. And should be condered on its merits.
Her argument was to say the positive aspects outwieghed the negitve.
I asked what grade she was giving to the report on its merits.
She said a D because he missed all the good aspects.
I have a meeting between her and the principal scheduled for tomorrow...
Oh my. What a twit that teacher sounds like. I think there should be balance but she can't decide who is too negative and who isn't. It is opinion.
I remember I helped my grandson find correct information about a history project he had to do. Each child had to write a report about a state historical figure and he got Don Juan Onate, the most reprehensible historical figure (even worse than Cortez) in our history. There are statues of him and schools named after him all over the state. Anyway, my grandson was upset because he had wanted some cowboy (can't remember his name). Once I found the right information though, all the heinous things Onate did, my grandson was into it and wrote a pretty decent report.
Those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it.. the person my son wrote about was not a nice guy. Yes he did some good. But to gloss over his evil would be wrong.
Would you mind identifying the historical figure?
Must be a thing.
So, I have been raising bunnies lately.
Have about 30 or so at this point. I rarely see their butts pointed at me. Usually they're trying to eat my shoes or socks.
They are so cute and loving. It melts my heart every time I see them.
If you really want a bunny related Easter themed sort of thing true to the season of spring and fertility, go watch a video of them mating with anything they can get ahold of. Pretty sure this is where the idea of Easter eggs from bunnies came from. If you put chickens and bunnies together, the bunnies will try to mate with the chickens...
Chinese made bunny backsides = Christ rising from the dead. Yup. That about sums it up.
Bunnies *** chickens? Where the hell have I been?
Not sure where you have been, but you clearly haven't raised bunnies and chickens and run out of fencing space and put the two together
By the way, if anyone wants an adorable bunny that loves being pet. I will give you one. Transportation is not included
