~a~May 12, 2009 3:19 pm at 3:19 pm #644637
Mod72 – I was at the place and I offered everyone fitting your description a cup of coffee with skim milk and sugar. All accepted and drank. This leads me to believe that you slipped in a red herring somewhere.
If I am right, please leave a piece for me at Vizhnitz. I like matjas herring.May 12, 2009 5:41 pm at 5:41 pm #644638
Thanks for the welcome jax. Happy lag!May 12, 2009 8:28 pm at 8:28 pm #644639
squeak- very good! PS- how come I didn’t spot you?
RY- I did some shteeble hoppin last night & saw the action in BP too. So- did you get a hug and kiss from the Rebba?? ;);)May 12, 2009 8:33 pm at 8:33 pm #644640
This is the official Mod72 Monsey Lag B’omer report
The plan: I conned Mod72 into thinking I’m the guy at the mike. I kept a steady lookout for anyone trying to approach the singer. I do not loosen my vigilance for even a second.
What action: I suddenly spot a very timid fellow sneaking up to the guy at the mike. The singer is oblivious to anything but belching out “bar yochoy’i”. I stealthily approach the timid fellow from behind and grab his hands to the back. I ominously whisper in his ear “Give me the password”. He responds “NO sugar and a splash of 2% C”Y milk “. We both breathe a sigh of relief, I let go & exclaim “Mod72! Areivim here! Good to meet you!”. The crowd goes silent, gawking… the rest made history 😉May 12, 2009 9:16 pm at 9:16 pm #644641
areivim – maybe you just didn’t know what to look for to find me. Did you see anyone there with a blue pinstriped suit, polka dot bow tie, alligator shoes and a top hat?
Well, that was not me.May 12, 2009 9:22 pm at 9:22 pm #644642
so then you must have been that odd ball’s partner- the one with, er, how do I put this nicely… well, he was very shiny! very shiny… somewhere at the top of the head area… he was not wearing a hat, his yarmulka was desperately trying to cover that very shiny spot… 😉 and, he curled his mustache. That really gave you away squeak- you shouldn’t haveMay 12, 2009 9:25 pm at 9:25 pm #644643
oh goodness areivim! You sure are some funny fellow! 😉May 12, 2009 9:57 pm at 9:57 pm #644644
mod72- you forgot to take a pic of the singer (the monsey lag b’omer pics only have the musicians and speaker)May 12, 2009 10:21 pm at 10:21 pm #644645
squeak, how did you know how 72 came dressed? you guys must be in cahoots. 😉May 12, 2009 10:38 pm at 10:38 pm #644646
areivim: well played buddy!May 12, 2009 11:21 pm at 11:21 pm #644647
squeak squeak squeak (i think we need some 4D-40), no sugar and 2% CY milk. you offered I refused.
areivimzehlazeh – it was a kodak moment, but… that was my decoy, i was rotflmko (rolling on the floor laughing my kishkas out) timid, HA! also regarding the pics, the keyboardist is the singer also.
oh and a big shout out to the Monsey Fire Department for doing a great job as usual.May 13, 2009 6:39 pm at 6:39 pm #644648
you mean you set up the Key Master himself to take your place? The meeting’s chashivus just tripled! But I don’t know what that says about the future of your job… laughing behind the editor’s back…May 14, 2009 2:36 pm at 2:36 pm #644649
areivim- that’s cool chances are we might have seen each other there! And no i didn’t recieve a hug from the rabbi i’m afraid i’m not eligible:-(May 14, 2009 8:34 pm at 8:34 pm #644650
RY- no hug is a good sign 😉
