Me: I think it's probably BadforShidduchim but it could be Something Different...Avram: What?Me: Our Shabbos guest.Avram: If it's not Bad4, who could it be?Me: Something DifferentAvram: How different could she be?Me: No that's her name....
I was pretty sure that it was Bad4, and I was tempted to pre-schedule a post to go up on Shabbos with my final guess posted for all to see. I didn't for two reasons:
- After my sister-in-law questioning me about what I am doing up at 2 a.m. blogging, I realized that not everybody is aware of the possibility of "scheduled" posts and it might seem like "ma'aras ayin" to have a post go up after Shabbos begins. (Despite what it may look like, I don't blog from work either. Who would do such a thing...?)
- Ignore reason #1. The overriding reason was the fact that I was only about 90% sure that it was BadforShidduchim and my pride couldn't take the hit of being wrong for all to see.
Well, suffice it to say, that after Scraps walked in with our two other guests, one with a gleam in her eye and the same impish and clever attitude that she exhibits on her blog, there was not a doubt in my mind that I was talking with Bad4. Guest #3's blogdentity (is that even a word?) remains a secret at her request.
We had a wonderful evening and even had a short stint playing Jewish Blogger Geography (which Bad4 wins hands down, since I am at a distinct disadvantage because I'm banned from her Manhattan Ice Cream Meetups due to marital discrimination).
Once Scraps used the term "funsies" at the table, we knew we'd have to do this again sometime. I had never heard that word out of anybody's mouth other than Joey's and truthfully, my train of thought was derailed for a good five minutes...
So now the only question that remains is...... WHO'S NEXT?
(Baked Lecho Dodi? "Fake" Lecho Dodi? Something Different?)
