Israel Flag Am Yisrael Chai

I never write about politics because I’m just not a very political person. It’s funny because my entire family is quite political except me. I don’t really care about the different parties or their platforms or who walked across the line and then crossed back. That doesn’t really interest me. My family could sit for [...]

  “Do you have to pee?” That has been me for the past 3 days. “Are you sure you don’t have to pee?” “Really? It’s been a while” “Why don’t we try to sit for a few minutes?” Think of bribe. “I have a surprise for you if you sit for a few minutes!” “Are [...]
