It was with a fair amount of trepidation that I embarked on an excursion with Jennifer yesterday to purchase eyeglasses and a few other pre school year, pre yom tov items.
Since in the past I have never been reticent about my great love of these adventures, I figure that in the interest of honest reporting, I should let you know that yesterday went off without a hitch.
The eyeglass store was fairly empty, and it took us longer to choose our frames than for the finished products to be ready. Oh Nuts! did not have my cherry sours, but believe me, I came home with enough cashews and vienesse crunch to ease the disappointment. The guy behind the counter at Eichlers actually waited on me
after he finished his half hour phone conversation when he got the chance. He also taught me something I never knew. Did you know that there is no way to figure out the size of tzitzis that a man wears unless he is present? Who knew?
In any case, after Jen and I treated ourselves to a slice of pizza and ran into friends in the process, we were duly informed why our experience had been so positive...... apparently ALL THE BORO PARKERS are still in the country!
