If you didn't read the comment section of the last post, I'll just let you know that I started a post not intending to publish it, but then did. I was so tired that I inadvertently hit the wrong button.
I had been talking about food shortages, when my husband Isaac gave me additional inspiration. You see, here in Israel, there is always talk about water shortages. This year in particular has been very dry and the water level, which is measured at the Sea of Galilee, more commonly known as the Kinneret, is at dangerously low levels.
Anyhoo, Liat was finishing washing her breakfast dishes, when she walked away from the sink, leaving the water running. She just forgot to turn the faucet off. This caused Isaac to passionately exclaim, "Liat, the Kinneret!!!!"
Okay, maybe not so funny to all of you, but imagine it with a Venezuelan accent and an extremely serious tone of voice. Now that is funny. "The Kinneret" has now become the household catch-phrase for the excess usage of water.
But of course, we all know what Isaac is really concerned about: the water bill.
