Post Shabbos Wisdom

Next time around I am going to marry a Hasidic woman.

I made this decision today, when I realized that if I had told a Hasidic woman that there is a custom not to daven mincha (the afternoon prayer) on Shabbas Mevorchim Chodesh Adar (ie, today) she would have replied, ""Oh Husband. You possess both wisdom and understanding. Go back to sleep, Beloved.""

She would not have drawn on her high falootin' education and she would not have said, and I quote, "Get out of bed and get dressed."
