Whenever our friend R.J. smells nail polish, he immediately thinks of growing up with mom in Great Neck, NY. Mentions of 9/11 bring back memories of hunkering down with friends over spaghetti in a NY flat, and vellum gift certificates remind him of his Bar Mitzvah. Every time Christmas comes up, as it often does at this time o’ year, he is overwhelmed with cravings for Chinese food.
And why wouldn’t he? Jewish Christmases and movie theaters and Chinese restaurants (practically the only places open besides Nate ‘n Al’s on December 25th) go together like ramma lamma lamma lamma ka dinga da dinga dong! Think of it as solidarity through the holiday season.
We’re glad to see that our pal is not alone. Brandon Walker, a singer we don’t really know all that well, has used some hokey jokes and “okey” voice, to concur:
…Funny? Not terribly. But that’s okay. It’s the holidays! L’Chaim!
