"Do you think we should watch Star Trek tonight?" I questioned Moshe, "We won't get home until close to 9:00..."
We had a wonderful Shabbat at Moshe's parents, but we were slow to leave, and the kids still hadn't eaten supper.
"It's a powerful motivator, for the kids to get ready quickly," Moshe replied.
I couldn't argue with that.
Uncertain about what in our cupboard could be prepared & eaten quickly, I suggested we pick up a pizza on the way home.
We settled in to watch "Cold Front", which continues a major arc story.
As the episode neared its end, Y protested: "it can't end here, the story isn't over!"
But the episode was, and Moshe quickly ushered the kids to bed.
As he was about to sing them to sleep, Y thanked Moshe for the pizza and Star Trek.
"Pizza and Star Trek," Moshe repeated, "what can be better than that?"
To which, A suggested: "What about coke and air conditioning?"
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
With love and optimism,
