12. Creating Transformation in Practice (Part 3)

I was living in DC about a year and a half ago and one warm evening, I took a rather long stroll to the local shopping mall in Columbia Station. I was about three quarters of an hour walk away from my home in Dupont Circle. I buzzed around the big box stores for a couple of hours and then began the long walk home. At that point it was late and dark, but the streets were still busy. The walk home took me through a rather rough neighborhood, near some lower-income housing projects. Bunches of people were congregated on the sidewalk in the warm summer night air.

As I walked down the street, a young boy and his friend passed by me. In an instant I noticed the boy closest to me (who looked about eleven years old at most) had tears running down his face. I stopped in my tracks and stood in front of him, preventing him from walking any further. “What’s wrong?”

Wouldn’t it be great if your dates came with little warning stickers? Well, you’re in luck, because they actually do. You just need to know how to spot little clues that say: “I’m unavailable,” “This is only a romp,” and “I’ll probably spill red wine on your brand new duvet.”

The Nice Jewish Boy: Can You Identify?

After years of denial, a piercing in my left ear and a brief infatuation with 80’s hair bands, I had come to accept my destiny…a curse, if you will, handed down by my father and his father before him. I was a nice Jewish boy.

Kosher Cinema: March Movie Picks For JDaters®
Hello again, JDaters®. Clearly some of you checked out the last column since a couple of you wrote in to point out some Jews I missed in films, including Stephen Lang in Avatar, who happens to be half-Jewish. So thanks for that.

 

If you’re reading this, you’ve managed to survive the fallow month of February and its generally poorly-rated film offerings.  But hark, what light through yonder window breaks? It is March, and along with Spring, it brings you films the studios actually spent a ton of money on.  Does that mean they’ll be good?  Heck no.  But at least it means they’ll be big!

No Stumbling Blocks, Please

The prohibition “Do not put a stumbling block before the blind” (Leviticus 19:14) seems like an odd commandment. After all, who but a truly mischievous, mean-spirited prankster would put something in the way of the blind to cause them to trip and fall? Surely, common human decency requires that one not do this (and it certainly must be forbidden by the Americans with Disabilities Act).

Hits & Mrs: The Question Of Exclusivity

Valentine’s Day can often be “make it or break it” time for a relationship. Those who aren’t invested enough to buy a present will mysteriously go silent at the beginning of February. On the other hand, those who are dating multiple people will try to keep things going a little while longer when the holiday falls during the week by booking one Valentine for Saturday night and one for Tuesday.

In her latest article, Dear Mrs D shares her tips for bringing up the question of exclusivity.
