"Duh" Moments in Jewish Life
Short because we're now on winter hours and Shabbat is rolling in early....
These are the "duh" moments of my chagim:
Pesach -- stopping in the midst of the kitchen kashering routine and wondering in exhausted bemusement, "Now how did I kasher that toaster last year?".....DUH!
Yom Kippur -- turning off the refrigerator light. Helllllooooo? Now just why would we be in the refrigerator? DUH!
I topped that a few years ago by not only turning off the 'fridge light on Yom Kippur but also putting out the blech and the kum-kum. For the morning coffee I'm not going to drink, natch.
Anyone else do this or am I the only one who goes brain dead at these times?
