Catering For The End of the World

“Hang in there,” the acquaintance said. 

“It’s all going to be over in 10 days, anyways.”

To which I responded, “Oh, I’m sure it won’t take that long.  Hopefully, everything will be back to normal by early next week.”

When that was met with a quizzical look, I asked, “What were you referring to??”

It turns out they had in mind the supposed end of the world, prophesied to occur in 10 days, according to Mayan tradition.

I was thinking of the aftermath of my son’s bar mitzvah, this coming weekend.
