I'm Still Cracking Up
Shifra, as usual, just has a way with satiric observations. She made me literally laugh out loud with her description of the scene at the Six Flags amusement park over Chol HaMoed Sukkot. This paragraph was one of her best:
There were also a few women who I'll call "Hot Chanies" (also TM.) These women, mothers in their mid-twenties or early thirties who came to the park with boys with payos tucked behind their ears, and little girls in tights and matching jumpers. These women were dressed to kill (think Boro Park meets Bond girl) in full makeup with long, sleek, sexy sheitles, tight sweaters and skirts slit high up the side, and high heeled boots! Bending over to put their kids into the rides they certainly attracted plenty of attention if not wolf whistles. This is a style I've not seen much of before but it didn't seems to phase their husbands who seemed to gaze about blankly while talking on their cell phones (as mentioned above.)Shifra may not have seen much of this this style before, but I am quite familiar. It is the style of choice for most young turkettes in the Five Towns.
