Today I went into Liz and David’s house to as I say “share the morning” as David says “bust in”.
I was glad to see that David was sitting in his chair dressed for work because he’s real touchy about me strolling in when he’s coming out of the shower even though I’ve told him many times that he doesn’t have anything I haven’t seen before.
I digress. I noticed that he wasn’t wearing a tie and I remarked on it.
He said it’s because he has a meeting with a jewish guy this morning who never wears a tie so he considers this appropriate dress.
“This guy is really plugged in with all the big jewish money”.
He’s thinking that if he dresses casually it will curry favor. I suggested that if he brings me along that would really impress him. He could pretend that he knows a jew.
“I know 3 jews.” he protested.
” If I include your family I know a shitload of jews. Did they turn Matt’s wife? I know they turned Cheryl but those two look like WASPS if I’ve ever seen one.”
“They’ll be thrilled to hear that” Any sarcasm in my voice is wasted on him.
But he didn’t want to offend so he said “I think jews are a fine race. Many of them are very smart.”
I’m clearly not one of the smart ones because I love the guy.
