Boker Tov

One of my tasks yesterday morning was going to get bagels for the house in case anyone stopped by and had not yet eaten breakfast. Unlikely, but nevertheless evidently a possibility. So at 6:45am I drove up to Einstein's. The regulars were there drinking their coffee and reading their papers. I've never been to this Einstein's at this hour but I imagine that this is their regular routine. It's not the kind of thing you just do one day.

But I digress. So I walked up to the counter and a man behind the counter says in a big booming voice, "Good Morning!" And started to respond, "Boker Tov." At which point I realized he would have had absolutely no idea what I was saying. It was a little surreal.

The best part of being there - they already had mixed dozens of freshbagels sliced and in boxes so that I didn't have to decide what kind to get!

You can't be sure ....he might have understood and resoponded. It would have been pretty cute if everyone sitting in the place had turned around and responded in a big booming "Boker Tov!" as though in a stage show.

Aw, this was an extremely nice post. Taking the time and actual
effort to make a superb article… but what can I say… I hesitate a whole lot and don't manage to get nearly anything done.
