And a spicy holiday to you too!

Nora, reciting the prayer over the candles: Barukh atah Adonai, Eloheinu, melekh ha'olam...

Ada, a few minutes later: Why were you saying jalapeno?

Nora: What?

Ada: Jalapeno. Barukh atah Adonai, jalapeno...

Someone should probably tell her that when they don't know the words, people often say "watermelon" instead.


  1. Ah that's a spicy mouthful. Jalapeno has a tilde thingy you know. Yeah I don't know how to make it online either.

  2. 1. I'm laughing. Really hard. Ada cracks me up.
    2. Remember that time Ada bit the end off the jalapeno? I was there. She didn't even care. She didn't even call it "picy"

    4. I'm coming over. I have apple bread for you.

  3. That's nacho typical misunderstanding.

  4. I wonder if I'm somehow depriving my children by not including the appropriate rituals in Christmas? Though I really don't want to explain about the naked man on the cross punctured with ironmongery just yet.
