My friends Mai, Rose and I had a food trailer lunch date on Saturday, and while we did, we read parts of Rose's old diary. A diary that she has kept - stunningly! - from age 8 to 18.
Have you ever dug up your old diaries? I highly recommend it. There's this one entry I wrote in my diary when I was like eight years old, and in it, I describe a day filled with drama. It ends with the line, "what is this, crying season??"
I always giggle about that. Both in its Jewish grandmothery rhetorical questioning, and in how applicable a phrase that really is. Sometimes, it just feels like crying season.
(But not, fortunately, on Saturday.)
