nice, green.
why bring up m'maatim b'simcha, when there is the opportunity for saying "marbim". so now you need to remmber in av, to say about adar marbim...and so if this is all too confusing , then just switch it now.

im happy you like the green. soak it up cuz it aint gonna be here for too long.

and no, that was not too confusing at all. see, when av comes this year, it will be a month of joy and celebration (yknow being reunited w/ our beis hamikdosh), so i just wanted to stick it in now, so no one forgets that there once was an inyan of mourning.

ma said...

uh , drink a big glass of water, and think how chalva would leave you with a sick feeling.

Also: Days before my dad came to visit me in Yeshiva a rabbi told me: "Mishenichnas Av mima'atin b'simcha."

PS I answered you sham.
