Had my first heckler.
Asked if this was some sort of a game.
Asked if I was wearing purple by coincidence.
Asked if we were just going to have to listen to my stories ALL night.
Asked why I couldn't just get to the point.
Left indignantly when I was mid sentence.
Reasons This Was Good News:
1. 32 years ago today I was called to the Torah as a Bat Mitzvah. Celebrated the occasion with another rite of passage.
2. Have limited experience handling disgruntled audience members and must build skill if want to continue to speak to wide range of audiences
3. Gave audience something
not related to crack or hijabs to talk about over coffee and pastries
4. Hey, it's Day Fourteen. I would get run over by a bus if I thought that would generate decent content.
