...and I still haven't started cooking. (Shocker!) Of course, this time I'm not getting yelled at [at least not about that], as SerandEz & Elianna are headed to a far away rock for Shabbos. Feel free to say hi, and no, you don't need to say "Hi, I know this is awkward, but..." On the other hand, if you want to keep to the tradition everyone else seems to, you're more than welcome to.
Side question about Far Rockaway - why in the world is it considered part of Queens and not part of the Five Towns? (Or Six Towns.) This gets really annoying for those of us not from there, as we tend to like our newfound [or re-found] ability to make rights on red, and then suddenly find ourselves having to worry "Wait, where am I again? Can I do this?" This gets very annoying.
Have a wonderful Shabbos!
That reminds me of a time when I was telling a friend of mine who lives in Queens (Kew Garden Hills) who went to the Yeshiva of Far Rockaway that Far Rockaway was in Queens. He didn't believe me until I showed him the municipal boundaries.ReplyDelete
For the record, the Yeshiva is actually in Lawrence (right on the municipal boundary).
Why didn't you say something earlier? I could have found out where you were going and arranged to stalk Elianna like a parrot repeating cheese over and over again to go with the previous word I taught her (Duh, cracker!). Enjoy the Rock:)ReplyDelete
Funny you say that about Far Rockaway. I remember once sitting at a red light, poised to make a right turn but not sure if I could do so at a red light (the most joyous privilege of a city dweller in the burbs) and there was a cop in the car right behind me. I'm sitting thinking "can I do this here?" "What the heck is Far Rockaway anyway--city or burb?". I decided to play it safe and not make the right on red which, I guess saved me a ticket in the long run.ReplyDelete
Avrom - Exactly! ... Well, I guess I was on the border then.ReplyDelete
MH - LOL. Hello, you should KNOW where we were! (Think!) :) [Hint: Near the White Shul.]
David - Hehe. Yeah, you'd never get out of that one...
You're allowed to make right on red in the 5 towns?ReplyDelete
ezzie- Doh! Of course! Guess the cheese will have to wait till thanksgiving:)ReplyDelete
when did Far Rockaway become part of Queens? When I lived there (before my family moved to Baltimore), it was definitely part of the 5 Towns.ReplyDelete
mIt is kinda weird considering that the part that's actually queens is now called west lawrence. talk about confusing:)ReplyDelete
