So it’s been raining so much here in the DC area lately.
The result is that the hot Summer July temperatures are down in the cool 70’s and the rain is flooding everywhere.
When I got in the elevator this morning, someone goes to me:
“Did you see the leak in the hallway? They are watering the tree with it.”
And sure enough, there it was!
When all this rain finally stops, there is going to be a lot of cleanup and repairs to do.
The other thing was yesterday, we were on the way to a board meeting in our synagogue.
In the elevator, are two other people — a man and women — carrying binders.
They say to us:
“Are you going to the board meeting?”
Surprised, because I didn’t recognize them from our synagogue, I respond affirmatively and ask to clarify:
“Oh, you’re going to the board meeting too? I don’t recall seeing you there before.”
Then the elevator stops and they start to get off — but it’s to a different board meeting for the building.
When they see that we’re going to a different floor, they start laughing:
“I guess we’re going to different board meetings!”
“Yeah that’s right, different board meetings, but we’ll all probably be bored!
Another laugh by everyone, and we we’re all off to the races. ;-)
