Lesser Known Universal Pesach Moments


This could be a "Top Ten" list, except I don't think I can come up with a full ten in my overtired, under-fibered state.

Feel free to add your own.
  • The moment that all frum women find themselves on erev Yom Tov in the local drugstore, clutching the Kosher L'Pesach cosmetics lists, trying to choose between two equally heinous shades of lipstick. They just know that they will hate the way it looks. They wonder why they bother for the 2 or 3 days that they can wear it anyway. It is like watching an impending train wreck and being powerless to stop it....
  • The moment that you realize that yet another fork will need kashering because your family is remains clueless as to which Pesach cutlery sets are milchig or fleishig.
  • Sweeping matzoh crumbs.
  • Sweeping matzoh crumbs in the same spot five minutes later.
  • OK, where are these crumbs coming from anyway?!?!
  • Getting reacquainted with prunes.
  • Watching the young children very seriously discuss whether Eliyahu's kos is just a little bit emptier than it was the night before.

1) young children getting diarhea from not chewing matzot, and eating too many sweets......

2) why any good recipe has something you can not get with a good chechsher, or any chechsher....

Nice to see the Zaide's Haggadah. I hope it was a hit in terms of nice Divrei Toirah.

finding out on sunday that your good shabbos silverware that you shlepped to the community hagolas keilim has deteriorated to the point that it is not kasherable this year and you have to buy new silverware and sell it to a goy in order to have it in time for yontiv

Mary Kay lipstick, and most of the rest of their makeup, is kosher for pesach. And they are actually good colors.

Oh, I just thought of one more that should have been included:

Marveling at how wonderfully sharp the paring knives are compared to the year 'round ones. How dull can they get in a week?

I thought it was just my Shul growing up, the whole shul saying in unison along with the Baal Koreah Ko'elah during Maphtir of pesach, it seams that some people are revving up the whole year just for this.
