Love Yoy Babe

My poor fiancee, just trying to do her part in continuing 5,000 years of beautiful history.

The rabbi told us that it is a tradition in Jewish weddings for the bride to give a new tallis, or prayer shawl, to the groom. So on a Judaica web site run by some fly-by-night company (based either in Tel Aviv or Crown Heights, or possibly both), Deborah found a pretty awesome -looking tallis threaded in rainbow, which has sort of become the color scheme for our wedding.

Then she decided to add her own non-traditional flourish -- having "Love You Babe" written in thread right there on the tallis itself.

But that isn't exactly how it turned out, as you can see. When I opened the box, I initially assumed that this was some sort of Yiddish pun...Oy! Goy! And Yoy!

That now doesn't appear to be the case. The company goofed. A refund/replacement request has been filed; I will keep yoy updated.

(P.S. Dear Mom, That thing you got Deborah for her shower is pretty much the greatest thing ever. Thanks!)

Ha, ha, ha, that's just all-around awesome! I love stuff like this ... years later, am still kicking myself for not buying a t-shirt I saw in China with a familiar swoosh and "NEKI" written underneath.

So happy Meg at A Practical Wedding clued us all in to your blog -- can't wait to hear more!
