"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?

Obviously you don't have small children anymore...of course you have to turn off the light...the kids are still eating!

Thank you--now I don't feel like I'm nuts....there was a reason! It's just that the "baby" is now 18, and no one goes in the 'fridge, so I stood there wondering why I kept turning off the light every year......

You make the kitchen ready for the grandchildren to eat when the kids no longer do. And I have friends who have to eat. I don't remember giving more than yogurt, crackers, pretzels and fruit, but I had to put the platta up for the grandchildren.
