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.
