So last Friday night, I’m davening shemoneh esrai, and ended the third brochoh with hakel hakadosh. So then I angrily restarted paying very close attention and when I got up there again, I was careful to say hamelech. But then it hit me that I really WAS supposed to say hamelech! Shoots! Now what? And I only realized this after I started atah chonen! So I reached over to the kiddush club cabinet, and glugged down a bottle so I was no longer mechuyev in mitzvos and just woke up now.
How many shemoneh esrais do I repeat?
One bottle of Glenlivet 18 should do it.
DaasYochid, you got your name back! I’m so happy – DaasYochid is a much nicer name!
