Mama Deb

How did this happen?

Collapse )Not too surprisingly, the other women from my shul who were staying sat at the same table. Some are or were board members in their own rights, and others were married to past or current members. The two single women who were on the board didn't stay - I'm guessing they decided not to.

And I meet one of my shul friends (board member, staunch feminist, mother of an extremely brilliant daughter, friend of the rabbis, comic book fan - an altogether cool lady) and show her where the table was, and she said, "Can I sit next to you?"

Not, "Good, I can sit next to you." Or, "There's a seat near you. Cool." Or, you know, just putting her purse down. But as if it was some kind of a privilege.

I felt like I was one of the Cool Kids. I have no idea how that happened.
