Big Dummy

The headline refers to me, not the adorable children pictured below in their Purim costumes.





Yesterday, Anna celebrated "Jewish Halloween." It is pretty interesting having her at the JCC, learning about all things Judaic.

I couldn't really remember anyone's name form the Purim story except Esther and Haman, so I was having Anna fill me in on a lot of details. This is the kind of game I play with her sometimes -- where I play dumb and she explains things to me. But she realized pretty quickly that I was not playing; I really didn't know. She was incredulous.

"Dad!" she exclaimed, treating me like a big dummy. "Didn't they even have school when you were a kid?"
