true, it would be good for him to have a sense of humor so he knows when you're just joking.
That's happened to me, people taking me seriously when I was kidding. I guess you have to know who to say it to.

Scraps said...

Okee, who are you going to tag? (I already did this one, so no, that was not a cry for attention!)

Okee said...

lvnsm-yeah, that is sometimes an issue! I'm still learning how to moderate my sarcasm, like-don't make a sarcastic comment to anyone under the age of fifteen. They'll get confused, and then the joke is just lost!

scraps-ohmygosh!! I forgot to tag someone...oish, who do I tag? Should I open it up for discussion? Anyone who wants to be tagged, make yourself known!!

So what's with the Gemara?
What if it's a mussar serfer?

Nice meme. I am great at getting lost, it's so much fun.

Jewboy said...

Hmmm...A lot of emphasis on Gemara. Interesting...

Okee said...

prag--there's just something about a gemara in a guy's hand...! I don't know, but a mussar sefer would really be just as wonderful -as long as it's not just an accessory, but a beloved sidekick.

sw/fm--if there's a possibility of getting lost, I'll manage to find it! But I'll always find my way home -I've got a stellar, albeit idiosyncratic, sense of direction that comes and goes.

jewboy--what can I say, I've got half-Litvish blood!

socialworker/frustrated mom said...

As long as you find your way home I guess that's the important thing lol.
