Favorite story from Seder #1

A little boy, who is very well-behaved for a two year old, was naturally quite hungry last night waiting for the Passover seder to begin.

His parents asked him what he wanted to eat while we were waiting for the meal. His response?

The house had already been de-chametzed, so there was no way a bagel was going to enter the picture.

His parents asked again, "What would you like to eat? Charoset?"

Once more he replied, "Baaaaaaggggggeeeelllllll."

An elderly relative yelled out, "8 days, kid!"

For ten minutes there was an incessant chorus of "Bagel! Bagel! Bagel! Bagel!"

Ultimately, my clever Bunny suggested that they re-shape a matzoh ball to look like a mini-bagel. This satisfied the young child, all was well, and we proceeded to have a wonderful (and delicious!) seder.

Yom tov!
