Okay so it is May 22, and I am still here.
I took the bus home from a meeting late into the evening one night last week.
Nonetheless, the bus was crowded even though it was past 9pm. The man standing in front of me was bedecked from head to toe in clothing that admonished; Repent- Rapture is coming May 21, 2011.
That particular bus heads straight into the heart of the Observant Jewish section of Queens. All around me the pious (wow -three vowels in a row- got to remember that word for scrabble game) were deeply absorbed in well worn books printed in both Hebrew and English.
"They live their live's as if the Messiah will arrive any day," my husband explained when I related the story.
And the bus moved silently towards everyone's home.
Me- I played games on the new phone the whole way.
If the world ended yesterday-I'd not being going anywhere good.
I suppose I need to write lessons for the week to come.
