My husband just asked me if I wanted to buy the comic shop.

"What am I? Michael?"

(For those who don't know, Michael Novotsky on Queer as Folk, a long time comic book fan, purchased a comic shop for reasons I have forgotten.)

We decided that it would not be the right thing for me and I know that the business wasn't going well because, well, they told me. Comics aren't selling these days.

But the thought did cross my mind for five minutes yesterday. I mean, a female superhero fan running a comic shop? Be cool. But being closed on Shabbos would be *bad*, and Ashkenazi rabbis don't give permission to have a non-Jew run it for you. And I have no idea about how to run a business.

It's an interesting idea and it sounds like you'd be good at it if you had the passion for it. But it also sounds like you don't, at this time, in this particular case. (A gentile partner would address the Shabbat problem, wouldn't it?)
