...And the conversation somehow drifted to 'Al Tishali Oti'. Declared one blogger, "If I was the sabra, I wouldn't post so cryptically'. "If I was the sabra", said another, "I wouldn't use so many Hebrew & Yiddish words." Another blogger chimed in, "If I owned 'Al Tishali Oti', I would be more consistent with colors n content." "I wouldn't be sarcastic to commenters", muttered another, darkly. One blogger added not. "I have nothing to say, for 'To know the sabra is to be the sabra'."

Sonal (Indian Cook at Indian Chabad House): "Hello, how are you?"
Chava (Same Chava like last conversation): "Thank G-d, and you?" Sonal: "Barukh Hashem"
Chava (startled appreciative laughter) Sonal (quizzically): "What's so funny?"
Chava: "Tell me, Sonal, when you heard what happened in Mumbai [ed: hundreds of miles away but still, Indian Chabad House], were you scared at all?" Sonal: "Why should I be scared? Moshiakh is on the way!"
