LO's little act of chesed

One of the qualities I love about PHD is that he is very outgoing and friendly. It seems as though he is passing this quality onto LO. It used to be that if we were meeting new people, it would take her a bit to warm up, come out from hiding behind me and actually make eye contact. Lately I have been witnessing the complete opposite.

We just took a trip to Disney World. At Epcot we were sitting in Germany and a man sat with us at our table. LO decided to strike up a conversation with him and so on she went with her 3rd degree....

What's your name?
Where are your from?
Are you here by yourself?
What's in your bag?
Are you Jewish?

This was just a snippet of the conversation but at the end of it all, she asked her new friend if he would like to spend the rest of the day with us. Apparently he was automatically ok in her book since he is Jewish and she didn't want him to have to spend his day all alone. (Is that chesed or what?)

We gave him our blog address (Hi Richard!) and wished him a safe trip home to Los Angeles. He gave us hope that some of our Los Angeles blog friends like Danny, Davi, Neil and Sophia, Jack, and Tamara may sometime end up on over here on the east coast. We'll meet you at Disney!

*I wish I would have thought to take a picture of him with LO but since I didn't, here's one of LO and Tigger instead!

It is a date. I don't know when, but we'll get there.

Tamara said...

I'd love to. But, not sure TikkunGer is so into Disney. However, why not come take a trip out to California. We have Disneyland, California Adventures, Sea World, Universal, Knotts, LegoLand, etc.

If you do ever come, I promise I'll give you a great tour. I love playing tour guide. And, as far as I'm concerned, it's worthy of a day off work :)

LO is well on her way to being the chairperson of a shul hospitality committee!

BTW, at first I thought this post said that the man sitting all alone was from Germany - I thought, "I hope his English was good enough to keep up with LO's interrogation!" :)

Neil said...

Definitely a date!

How about letting us see a picture of PHD?

Jack and Neil - we'll hold you to that and we have it right here in writing!

Tamara - that i smost certainly a possibility since the only time I have been to LA was when I changed planes on the way to pick up LO from China!

RM - She'd make a perfect shul hospitality person! That's funny about the German but good thing it wasn't because she speaks very quickly and keeps us on our toes even in English!

Anon - Feh! And ruin all the mystery? Forget about it - it's much more fun this way.

Well, okay, as long as we get a wedding picture in the near future.

Danny said...

Yay, but you and LO also need to come to L.A. and come to my and Davi's supercool shul!

ahhh...very sweet..but I imagine its a bit disconcerting for strangers to have to pass the M.O.T. test!

Just saying hi. I just found your blog through Jpix and I'm glad I did!

Danny - I would love to come to your and Davi's supercool shul! Hopefully we'll get out there soon.

Amishav - You're right. I still think it's cute but I am sure it's going to reach a point when it's not so cute anymore.

Sara - welcome! I love your blog!
