The Orthodox Priest
Last week I saw him wrestling a garbage can to curbside. I took it from him. It wasn't heavy - recyclables. I pointed at his walker & joked, "You should put a seat & a motor on that."
He replied - the first words I ever heard from him, "Ah, then I'd be sittin' on my tukus all day."

Is this your first venture into the world of Yiddish? (grinning)
Just thought I'd direct you to more Yiddish words commonly used.
I live near one of the larger populations of Orthodox Jews in Jersey. All I need say to any Orthodox Jew in the New York area is "I'm from Elmora."Post a Comment
