It was Rosh Hashanah earlier this week so I am throwing back to another post about the Jewish New Year.
Happy New Year, my Jewish friends!

In which I realize I don't know how to spell my cousin's name
It was Rosh Hashanah about a week and a half ago, and my sister posted a video on her Facebook wall for her Jewish friends.
I saw it and immediately thought it'd be a fun way of wishing my cousin-in-law a Happy Rosh Hashanah.
But then I realized I didn't have his email so I was going to post the video on Facebook and tag both of my cousins.
But then I realized I wasn't friends with him on Facebook so I was going to search for him and friend him.
But then I realized I didn't know his last name so I was going to ask my cousin what her husband's last name was.
But then I realized I didn't know how my cousin-in-law spelled his first name. There are two possible variants and I could not for the life of me remember which way it was written on the wedding invitation.
So then, I emailed my sister to ask about it and well, I don't know why I thought she would know because my sister can't read English.
So then, I'm like CRAP, I'm such a bad cousin, I don't even know how to spell my own cousin's name AND I don't know his last name. GREAT.
So then I'm like, now I really have to send him this video to show that I care and I'm thinking up ways to do it without letting on that I'm a turdball when...................Rosh Hashanah passes me by.
Sorry cousin dude. I tried. It's the thought that counts, right?
Except you don't even know I had the thought.
Unless you read this post.
Happy Belated Rosh Hashanah.
Except now it's Yom Kippur.
Boy, I'm really behind.
