flick it good


i made a little hamsa hand out of a long overlocked strip of green jersey to adorn the wine we brought to my friend's seder last night.

my favorite part of the service (and there were many; i think passover can be really beautiful) was the ten plagues. you dip your pinky in wine and flick it off onto your plate to remember & rid the world of said plague. this was the only part of the evening where you were required to sit up straight, as you were remembering the strife and all. the rest of the night, you were supposed to recline and relax during the service and meal. 

we each picked something extra to flick off. my plate, and the surrounding vicinity, was quite red. i was very passionate in my flicking, and said each word with much vehemence and gnashing of teeth. 

can i just say, i can really get behind a religion that requires you to sit back, relax, and drink three full glasses of wine before you even begin the meal?
