If I Coulda, I Woulda

The following is in answer to all those who ask me:

When I’m going home to visit my family.
[Without the humiliation of telling my two dozens cousins, and/or their kids, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” when they show up, smiling and expectant, to say “Enkuwan LeAgerish abeQash”]

Why I’m not going to school.
[While also paying for my rent. Keeping my sanity, my hours and the man I am in a relationship with].

Which I’m going to do first: Petition my sister or bring my parents to visit.
[Without committing a crime – bank robbery .. lying on my taxes; or doing something illegal – prostitution.. being paid to marry somebody LeVisa or marrying somebody LeMoney].

    I gotta say, your blog can be a little depressing when it comes to your view of the future. Is it possible that you are a tad defeatist??

    Wait till you go home the first time. After that, you can’t wait to go back again. america yeweha mengede yihonal, after that. As to “dollar”, i don’t know what exactly you are trying to do over there. My recommendation is, Book your flight early (february is good time), then tell your family not to tell everyone you are be coming. Infact, if you can get away with just saying hi to your close relatives, the better. Good luck.

    I have been wondering that myself, Judy. Especially after I mangled my citizenship application [in a way a “mehayim” wouldn’t] and gotta do all sorts of troubleshootings each costing 19.99 afterwards. Still hanging by a thread, girl, still hanging by a thread.
