The letters of our thoughts are the ideas present in our mind before they come to realization . . . Thoughts that are, yet not felt . . . The words of the subconscious . . . of the soul . . .

You Have Such Bochur Problems


Hel, Poland 5766


I need to make a Visa for Merkos Shlichus . . . Great!
The problem: I need two blank pages to do so.

Two Blank pages? I have maybe four or five blank spaces scattered around, but not a single empty page -let alone two.

Now I need to rush to Boropark (since the passport agency in Manhattan is booked full of appointments)
to add the extra pages . . .

Who ever said being a bochur was easy?

Must say that I'm a bit jealous of your hardships ...

trust me -my real problems don't go up.

welcome to the neighborhood! Merkos should make a special passport, something like the blue UN passport that would enable the bochurim to travel anywhere w/o a visa.
hatzlacha in ur shlichus!

Good idea . . . good luck in making it.

Ha! This should be the worst of your problems. It is annoying, though.

Mottel said...

What did you think, we jumped the borders on the backs of flat-bed trucks or parachute from low flying aircraft?
Well, I mean we don't always go in like that . . .

the sabra said...

Mmm ya. Or not as dramatic, but yknow just walkin across the border, head held high.

Then again, you guys are the ones who come with a cow and knife when you're gone for more than three days.

you could be a shochet too, if you wanted to be. (and if you found someone willing to teach you.) i think that's my next project- to be a shochet. after all, i was born in adar.
