Not only did this evening's fry-up inspire a new short story, but I've just come up with a Chanuka Carol. Sung to the tune of The Twelve Days of Christmas, here is The Eight Days of Chanuka. You'll know how it goes, so just sub in the following.
On the first day of Chanuka, my true love gave to me,
The Essential Paul Simon CD
On the second day of Chanuka, my true love gave to me,
Two sheepskin gloves
and The Essential Paul Simon CD.
Get it? Now sub in:
Eight candles flickering
Seven chocolate coins
Fiiiive Goooolden Latkes
Four Coffee Cards
Three French pens
(Two sheepskin gloves - you're singing now aren't you? - and The Essential Paul Simon CD!)
That's it. There are only eight days, you know.
