Kapusta, good one! I also heard some kiruv guy adapt that when he was trying to ‘encourage’ a ger to have a bris done and the ger wanted to know how long recovery would take. He said, After my bris, I couldn’t walk for a year and a half!September 15, 2009 9:21 pm at 9:21 pm #658675September 15, 2009 9:34 pm at 9:34 pm #658676
u guys are managing 2 put me off coke!!!
is it true that if u have a stomach ache – coke sorts it out? i know a few people who drink coke when having stomach trouble.September 15, 2009 9:40 pm at 9:40 pm #658677feivelParticipant
I thought adding milk to your coffee was because primative coffee drinkers did not know how to properly roast and brew the beans, causing an exceptionally acidic taste. The pH properties of milk (high base) helped to neutralize it.
you got it all wrong squeak
you put milk in the coffee to allow you to drink it before Davening
coffee is koof, vav, heh
milk, chalev is the gematria of 40 or mem
if you put the chalev, 40, mem into the kaveh you get Mikvah
and as all Chasidim know the Mikveh is mutar before daveningSeptember 15, 2009 9:40 pm at 9:40 pm #658678oomisParticipant

coffeeroomfan-Don’t drink Coke it is quite unhealthy. Water, Herbal Teas, Lemonade… the choices are there go for it.September 16, 2009 11:47 am at 11:47 am #658691SJSinNYCMember
Oomis, doing well. no contractions yet, but an induction is scheduled for tomorrow. I do NOT want to be induced, so everyone send labor vibes!September 16, 2009 2:22 pm at 2:22 pm #658692NY MomMember
SJSinNYC – You should have an easy labor and both Mommy and baby should be healthy b”eH.
If you do not want to be induced, there are a couple of things you may want to try to get labor going naturally. Taking a few tablespoons of castor oil – my sis-in-law did this and went into labor (but she was overdue). May sound yucky, but some say it works – do an enema. (Sorry if the “e” word offended anyone!) You may want to check with your dr. first.
Hatzlochoh Rabbah!September 16, 2009 2:28 pm at 2:28 pm #658693
SJSinNYC – try running (kind of) up a lot of stairs – (be careful) – heard it helps…
i was in Israel – climbed about 114 stairs (with hubs help!) and labor started that evening!!
Everyone: i get that coke is no good 4 me – but any suggestions – (not water) that could kinda fill it’s place??September 16, 2009 3:24 pm at 3:24 pm #658694

Whatever it is, just make sure not to drug up your baby. You dont want to addict him this early.
