Purim 2014

18 Mar

You have seen the slow evolution. You probably predicted it. And it happened.

I went all out this year.

It came to me on Succos. My son was playing with cars and trucks outside when he wailed,

“I dropped my mordechaicyle!” turning the soft ‘c’ into a glutteral ‘ch’.

And it hit me, right then – a motorcycle gang – or Mordechai-cycle gang! Kids will be bikers, handing out beer and gum cigarettes. And throw in cupcakes for a carb.

So with a good idea, too many Google searches, and an awesome Graphic Artist sister-in –law, my shalach manos was well….you tell me. (Actually the final pics aren’t so good because the cellophane was too glare-ee, so I broke it down to parts)





I think I’ve peaked though. It’s all downhill from here.

      Seriously, that’s what I was thinking about as I fell asleep last night.

      “You incompetent homophone-user botcher-upper, it’s peaked PEAKEd!!! You should fix it right NOW!!”

      And then I fell asleep and woke up to this comment 🙂

      When I read your post on Shalch Monos I was thinking – “oooh boy, she would not approve of mine!” I was almost going to be in your neighborhood on Purim and was thinking of stopping by just to give you a heart attack…but I stayed in Lakewood 😉

      Thank you! 🙂

      It’s always nice to get compliments on talents you don’t think you own.
