an evening of dance

One of the guys at work is part of a ballroom dancing performance and he asked everyone to come and watch. For 7 months he has been practicing this 3 hours a day 5 days a week. He first sent out an email which I ignored. He then walked around asking everyone if they were going to come or not. I told him that I had to think about it. Then he came around again asking if I was coming and I told him I had to discuss it with my wife. Finally he came around asking if I had discussed it with my wife.

So I agreed to go. I do have to work with this guy and I don't really want to insult him. Shouldn't there be some law about what co-workers are allowed to ask you? Or how many times? Is this the same thing as girl scout cookies?

My wife quoted a recent dilbert when I told her about it, which surprised me because I hadn't realized she kept up.

So we're making an evening out of it and got a babysitter, which is a story unto itself, and we're going out for dinner in Haifa, if we can find a kosher restaurant (apparantly not such an easy feat). Our babysitter said she really wanted to come but her friends were getting together at 10:30, so would we mind if she found someone to replace her then. Of course, she didn't know for sure that her friends were getting together, so she only wanted someone to replace her if she decided to leave. We needed a babysitter, so we agreed that if one of our regular babysitters was willing to replace her at 10:30 conditionally then that would be fine. Obviously she didn't find anyone, so we found another babysitter who was happy to stay the whole time.

Kosher food in Haifa

Thanks. My secretary told me that Atlit is not close by, so we'll probably end up at El Gauchos again.

Have fun!

Is El Goucho l'mehadrin up there? Or can you at least get Chalak steaks by them?

It's not mehadrin, but they do have mehadrin steaks. It's advisable to call first to ask what they have. Last night the Entricotes were chalak.
