Gone Fishin’

Well my friends,

The sluggish summer days are about to slow down to a full stop as I depart for vacation.

No, no, please don’t cry.  Really. Don’t make this harder than it is. I will be back.

In the meantime, I found a very entertaining blog that you might want to check out (but don’t get too committed – I need you to come back). The blog is called “Let’s Radiate Don” and it had me laughing.

I will leave you with one other little gem. I just rediscovered a yiddish saying that my grandma taught me. She was very sophisticated, but would throw in a smattering of yiddish from time to time.

The saying is this: “Hak mir nisht ein tshaynik”

Which, as I understand it, translates to mean, “Don’t knock my tea kettle.”

Isn’t that a wonderfully satisfying expression to have in your back pocket? Just think, the next time someone tells you that you caused your own cancer because of your unresolved anger issues you can just reply, “Hak mir nisht ein tshaynik.”

Until the next time,

  1. Samantha, have a wonderful vacation and come back refreshed so you can continue your blog for all of us to follow.
    I like it don’t knock my tea kettle. It is catchy.

    Hi Sam, I think fishing is like meditation, take your time being in the moment with the nature. I heard Dr. Sanjay Gupta said on tv yesterday, “more meditation, less medication”. “Meditaton reduces stress, cut down heart attack chances by half”. Enjoy your fishing trip.
    Yes, assertiveness is good, takes practice, “don’t knock my tea kettle”. I like to say it in the non English version better like your grandmother.
