o how frustrating people can be

I am speaking to you about poetry
And you say
When do we eat?
The worst of it is
I'm hungry too.

wandering and anon were right! It's rom my blog and once I saw it, I couldn't stop thinking about it!

And I agree, it is not suppossed to be cute. It is suppossed to remind us that not all men are crwated equal. There are those of us who expect more and those of us who expect less... :(

or that there's a time and place for everything. and yes, even though i too am interested in the mundane, i can recognize that now i must put aside my material desire for something else.

:-P (Hungry people > Search blog... duhhhhhhhhh)

Reminds me of the farmer who walks into shul on Yom Kippur and finds everyone crying. "Why are they crying?" he wonders. "I guess they're upset that the cholent isn't cooked yet." And he cries too... 2 hrs later... "It's gotta be cooked by now, why are they still crying?! Ahh! They forgot the barley! Takkeh a tragedy!!..." And all through Yom Kippur he cried bechiyos nora'os with the best of 'em...

(Poor guy nearly died when he saw the modest cake and orange juice...)
