Nervousness

Shabat is almost ready, the salads are done and I just have to prepare the rice for the chicken. We're leaving for Israel on Sunday! My middle son is shaking of excitement. He has been hearing about Israel as long as he can remember and now he is finally going to discover this land which is so important for us! He will be able to taste a haburger at Mac Donald's for the first time in his life isn't that a thing to remeber? I am nervous, this is the last time we're going there before leaving.
This morning I called my Israeli bank to ask if the money we've "swifted" had arrived.
- Non cherie, not yet! answered the French-speaking lady. I smiled and wondred if there is another country in the world where they call you darling when you call the bank...
Shabat shalom!

Hold on, are you talking about a bank in Israel? Calling you darling? You must have "swifted" over a lot of money... ;-)

Or maybe they do that, it's just that when I have fought the so called line at the bank they could offer me a bottle of champagne and a kilo of chocolate, I would still be in a bad mood!!
