A funny thing happened a few days ago.
We were visiting my son this week. As he and I were standing in line in a restaurant on 33rd Street, waiting to pay for some take-out, I was asking him some questions about his relationships and those of his friends.
I then asked "are Moishie and Berl dating?"
Being a little hard of hearing, I may have spoken a bit too loud.
The gentleman in front of us turned around, and with a look of utter astonishment looked us up and down, and left the line shaking his head.
I burst out laughing. This was my first experience.
"Something appealing, something appalling, something for everyone: a comedy tonight."
