This shabbos I'm planning on going to sderot. Since I dont think I know anyone there, I called this really cool organization that hooks people up with places to stay for shabbos. The conversation went like this:
Me: "Hi, I'd like to go to sderot for shabbos."
Him: "Sderot? Are you sure? I usually don't ask people about their plans, but do you realize that there are bombs and rockets falling there? Sometime two or three a day, its a sakana. Are you sure thats where you want to go?"
Him: "Oh, is that why you're going?"
Me:" Pretty much."
Him:"Oh ok then, how many guys do you want to go with?" And then he proceeds to ask a bunch of questions like about my hebrew fluency and kashrus standards etc. Just to ensure that I would have an enjoyable shabbos.
One of my goals is to bring back a kassem. (no I'm not gonna sell it on ebay. I can never figure out how to post a picture on any of the stuff I tried selling in the past, and nobody bids if you dont put a picture. I dont think my descriptions help that much either. But whatever the reason, ebay doesnt seem to work for me. Actually, I wouldnt want to sell it anyway.Thats not something you want to part with so fast. Besides I read in the paper that the cops clean up the rockets immediately after they fall, so I'm gonna have to beat the cops to the punch, and try to smuggle it on the bus going home, not very easy. Maybe I'll put a shirt and a cap on the rocket and sit him next to me on the bus. And name him Quentin. And carry a loud conversation with him a whole way back so no one gets suspicious. We can discuss anything. As long as I know enough on the topic to play both voices I'd be ok . Since I only have questions on the whole killer whale thing, no answers thats going to be one of the topics that we avoid. At all costs. No matter how tempting I'm going to have to contain my curiosity until after we are safe in my apartment. We just can't risk all when I ask a simple question about killer whales and "quentin" is completely stumped. They're all gonna realize he's a rocket in seconds. I think I'm gonna bring along my false beard and put it on "quentin". And then I bet even a real rocket scientist wont recognize him. ) I just think it would make a great paperweight/ conversation starter. Hopefully it all works out, and I manage to safely capture a rocket.(safely means without getting hurt, arrested, or stuck in a tree for 24 hours) Stay tuned.
