"Unchosen" Simchas Teyreh

The protagonist of the book, Yossi, joined us for Shemini Atzeres Hakofos. He seemed quite comfortable there with his Choop and Shtreimel, sort of a regular "cool BoroPark" guy.

We sat in the Sukkah and said Lechaim, and he had a very joyous conversation as well as Hakofos.

He had been to Israel for quite some time and I guess is now trying to readapt to Boro Park life, at least on Jewish Holidays.

He came back for more on Simchas Teyreh night.

He says that Ms. Winston Hakked him a Tcheynik with the silly picture of him on the Brooklyn Bridge carrying that big old garbage bag. He had his "regular clothes" in that bag.

I guess Lubavitch has something to offer for these souls after all.

Why didn't you invite Hella to come too?Coulda been a Hella of a yuntiff !
I don't think the picture was of him, though.From what I remember, it was doctored anyway.I think Hella herself admitted that.

Tzig, you seem to be so proud of yourself: like poor Yossi, let's talk about him and his endeavors. I, on the other hand, am a well-acomplished chosid and what night. yeah right.
