PARANOIA

So, I just saw Osama Bin Laden on the street. He was wearing a snow parka with the hood up, but I could still see his beard.

It was him, I tell you. At the corner of 86th and West End Avenue. For sure, it was him. Either him, or my high school principal.

I suppose there's a slight chance that it could have just been one of the bearded Jews of the Upper West Side.

But just remember: just because you're paranoid doesn't mean someone's not out to get you.

I was wondering...just what exactly does kvetch mean, anyway?

Enjoying your blog. I have some Jewish (and Christian, for that matter) friends that I think would enjoy it as well. Mind if I link?

Osama in snowy New York, huh? Scary as hell, I'm sure.

LilRed, link away! I'm flattered...

Kvetch means "complaint"--I use it in more of the "soapbox" sense than in the "annoying whining" sense.

Esther,
Call me ASAP. Tell me where he is. I'll use my patented Tiger Schulmann Karate techniques (see, I told you I have a thing for the Jews) and take Osama down. Then we can split the $50 million bucks. THEN we can each write a great American novel and let the other copyedit it.

Dream big!
