“Oh Mama, look!”

The woman raised eyes from the screen to follow her daughter’s arm. “Kitsch to the max,” she wrinkled a lip at the stall.

“But Mama!” The child checked her tone before it thinned into a whine. She loved the shoes! She would need finesse. “I mean,” she shaped a grin, “for Purim?”

Her mother shook her head. “What are going to dress as, Queen of Tchotchkes?”

  1. Na’ama Y’karah,

    I love it that the word “tchotchkes” found its way into both of our stories. We’re having a Purim carnival tomorrow. I’ll send you a picture of my costume. 😉 Cute story.

    Shalom and Purim Sameach a little belated,

    Rochelle
