    Humorous story from last weekend: Went out with friends, and for about a half hour a girl and a guy were staring a hole through me. Finally, girl comes over.

    "Umm, I have a question for you."

    "Sure," I thought, expecting her to ask something completely different than what she was to blurt out.

    "Are you ... chosen?"

    "Umm, are you asking am I Jewish?"

    "Uhhhh ... yes. Yes, I am."

    "Yes, I am chosen."

    "Ok, thank you."

    And then she walked away. My friends were laughing so hard they were crying.

    Gotta love people when they drink.

    theantijock saidThat was just a polite way of asking if you're cut.


    Ha. Perhaps. But the guy she was with never came over. Perhaps he only likes uncut.

    I love Jews.

    I walked in to one a couple of weeks ago and someone yelled "DIBS!!"

    I was pretty flattered.

    I'll have to share this story at Thanksgiving tomorrow. "Half" of the hosting gay couple is Jewish, plus several of the other guests. Curious to know if they ever had a similar experience, plus they may get a laugh out of it. I'm sometimes mistaken for Jewish myself, wonder how people make these determinations? I certainly don't have that "talent" though I'm quite proud of my gaydar.

    One December a newly assigned Army sergeant in my office gave me a Hanukkah card. Exchanging cards among soldiers was often practiced in smaller offices, particularly if the rank spread wasn't too great, and I was still only a Major, about to make Lt. Colonel. Only problem is, I'm not Jewish.

    So I called my office manager in, a Master Sergeant, and asked out of curiosity why this other sergeant thought I was Jewish, since everyone else gave me Christmas cards. But I insisted the inquiry be made discreetly, the sergeant not be made to feel bad about it. I was grateful to receive any card, although displaying it with the other cards in my office might look odd.

    Well, I should have known better than to say anything at all, because not 2 minutes later the sergeant was outside my door asking permission to enter, coming in and saluting, standing at attention, offering his apology all nervous. I tried to put him at ease and play it down, thanking him for his card, but did ask him what made him assume I was Jewish.

    "Sir, I understand you come from New York City."

    "Well, close, just outside the City in New Jersey."

    "Yes, sir!"

    "And...?"

    "Well, you come from the New York area, sir."

    "Exactly, as I said, and so what's the connection?"

    "Well, sir, you come from that area!"

    "Ah! You're under the impression that everyone from New York is Jewish?"

    "Yes, sir!"

    I tried to keep from laughing, and explained that wasn't the case at all. He further said my uncommon last name also was unknown to him, so he thought that must be Jewish, too. He'd grown up in Arkansas, and spent his Army career in the South, where I'd lived myself about 10 years at that point at various posts, but it still surprised me to encounter such a belief.

    I had no idea you were Jewish. I'm clueless about that kind of thing though.

    I thought it was pretty funny when it happened. Someone was making good use of the internet.

    Somewhere in the text I missed the discussion of menorah-shaped dildos and delicious unleavened bread.

    icon_redface.gif Had the same thing happen to me when i was 22 and walked into a gay bar for the first time. It was "Backstreet" in Atlanta. At the time it was also THE dance club for the "adventuresome" straights, which was the group I was with. I was freaked out. The first time I experienced gaydar. Was also the first time a guy ever grabbed my crotch, and crotch. It took month to recover, but then you couldn't keep me out of the place.icon_cool.gif
