Scene: Shabbat morning services.
My friend who recounted this story.
A young boy seated behind her.
Friend overhears young boy sighing to his father in exasperation, “When is the service going to be over?”
Friend, after the service: “You know, when I was your age it was hard for me to sit through the service, too.”
Young boy, his eyes widening as they take in her white hair and mature face: “You mean you can remember back that far?'”
