housewarming...
Jon and Laura closed on their house today. The movers will be there tomorrow to bring in their furniture and it will be home. :-D Then they will live 15-45 minutes away from us, depending on traffic.

SO, tonight, I drove to their new house and hung a mezuzah on their doorpost. I know for a fact that they only own one, and I gave that one to them. So I bought another one for them that's about the same size and shape and hung it up. My fear was that they'd freak that I hung it up for them but I wanted it to be a surprise for them. I figured since it was about the same size and shape, they could put the old one back in it's place if they'd rather have that one up there.

I dunno. I thought it was a way cool idea. And I loved doing it. And now that I've done it, I feel kinda wrong about banging a coupla holes in the doorpost of someone's new home without asking them. Sigh.

Jon had commented to me today (wistfully, I might add) when I went over to the house to see it that they didn't have a mezuzah up yet.

Well, we'll see.

Current Mood: confused confused

I think it's a sweet idea. And if you know that they were going to hang up a mezuzah anyway, you haven't done any harm by banging holes in the doorpost.

As it turns out, they were not offended and thought it was sweet. They were quite surprised. Of course, they knew it was me, since the only other person that knew they'd moved in, knew they were Jewish, and would have had the wherewithall to do it would have been there realtor and that would have been a little weird.

So it worked out. I worried for nothing. :)

A-ha!

So, the next time you're planning on surprising me, I should check your LiveJournal first! :-)

Re: A-ha!

You could. But I could just as easily have protected the entry, which I would have done if I'd been concerned about you reading it.

But remember, even if you'd read it before you'd seen the mezuzah, it still would have been a surprise! ;) And by the way, you told me that my journal couldn't possibly be interesting because your name wasn't in it, so you had no intention of reading it, ever.
:-P

Sure you don't want an invitation code?
