Something that happened today

This is a really, really short post. This introduction is only to make it longer.

This evening, my mom said, "Would you like to go to services with me?" She was referring to the night-before-yom-kippur services, aka Kol Nidre. I say no. My dad says, "C'mon, you know he's an atheist." Thanks, dad. Then my mom says, "Don't say that! It's Yom Kippur!" What the hell?

Kol Nidre, for future reference.

But that's pretty amusing.
"Oh my god he's atheist! *makes symbol to ward off evil*"

And now I'm laughing, a lot.

I knew that.

Of course you did.

If it makes you feel any better, the actual Jewish person, isn't going to Kol Nidre either.

Edited.


Did you ask your mom what she meant by that? That would have been a good point to debate from.

Heh, I shy away from those all the time, so I'd understand if you didn't.

What exactly do you mean by "edited?"

I wrote "Kol Nidre" in the post.

Seth does that. It's part of his OCD.

I think I'm speaking for all of us here, I'd rather you didn't change people's posts without consulting them first, unless it's a spelling mistake you're correcting. You came up with the idea for the blog, but it's owned by its contributors, not you.

I second Caleb.

It's a bit more comforting to be asked before the edits.

Acknowledged and understood, but you'll notice it's more professional now. It's not as if I'm going through the post just because I can think of ways to make it sound better; you said something unclear, and i made it clear.

But sure, I shall consult in the future.

Yeah parents dont really understand that stuff, once i was muttering about how pointless church was when i found out i had to go but my mom says "fine you can be an atheist and not go to heaven!"

but that didnt really help to change my mind (i had to go anyway though)

My grandparents are atheists.

Heh. My mom forces me to participate in ceremonies at home and to go to temple. But having a religious mother has perks. I get to skip 8 days of school to have my coming of age ceremony and lessons in India.
