Life may suck, but marriage is not the answer.
HT to my mother, who was eavesdropping on the bus:
“Here you are with three kids, while I’m scrounging around for dates.”
Personally, I don’t see the connection. You can have three kids and still be scrounging around for dates (via divorce) or have no kids and not be dating (married, childless), or various other imaginative combinations. Moreover, while children are loads of fun, they’re also a massive pain, so while they’re something I would love to have, I’m not kvetching about not having them yet. And scrounging for dates? Well, when I remember how miserable I feel after a string of bad dates, I think I’d rather have none than lousy ones.
My verdict: this woman needs to get over herself.

Seeing as I’m partial to eloping, maybe I should go last.

[Lowers voice] Gosh. Isn’t he around 28 now? Nebach. [/hushed]
A newly landed yeshiva bochur is being explained the ins and outs of dating. He is informed that there are no hotel lounges in all of Brooklyn excepting the Brooklyn Marriott. He doesn’t seem very clear on what exactly the Marriott is.
“So, what is it?”
“There’s a lounge where you can get a drink and sit down.”
“And it’s for dating?”
“Not officially, but unofficially that’s one of its biggest uses.”
“And when they built it, they called it the Marry-It on purpose?”
