We started a new family tradition this year.
Motza"sh (Saturday night) is Star Trek night.
We started at the beginning (chronologically), and will watch an episode of Star Trek every Motza"sh until we've finished.
When Moshe first proposed this "project", I pointed out that it will take years to watch every episode. "That's right," was Moshe's simple response. "OK," I acquiesced.
Along the way, we've come up with the ground rules:
Whoever is home, watches.
Whoever is not home, can watch it on their own during the week.
If we are all not home, we will watch it together during the week.
It can be difficult to schedule Star Trek during the week, but it can be done.
Last Motza"sh we were all out, so we scheduled Star Trek night for Wednesday night (tonight).
At 8:00 pm, just before we began watching tonight's episode, A started crying in pain. She had severe pain in her ear. The doctor said that we needed to bring her in.
"I don't want to go to the doctor," A protested.
For a moment I thought she was afraid, or maybe just too tired. She quickly dispelled that thought.
With tears in her eyes, A looked at me and implored: "What about Star Trek?"
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
With love and optimism,
An Apology Deserved
