Flowers For Shabbos!

On the Friday before Shuvuot, I went to Elat Market to buy grapes and parsley and there was this adorable single young woman outside hawking “flowers for Shabbos.” She was so cute and so tznious (modest) at the same time! I had a hard time looking away and I had a hard time looking at her because I was not going to be a customer. I was impaled on the horns of a dilemma. I was sorely tempted to buy flowers simply because she was adorable but these were funds set aside to buy Marc Shapiro lectures.

My parsimonious side won out as it usually does.

I wonder if she’s interested in dating a poor blogger. I’d find a way then to buy her flowers for Shabbos!
