Overheard

As I was getting my hair cut at a local salon that is owned by an Italian-American woman, I overheard two of the stylists talking:

Stylist #1- "So how's your Mom doing?"
Stylist #2- "Not so good. She's still heartbroken that my brother married that Jewish girl. She doesn't approve of intermarriage at all."

I was kind of startled. It was so strange to hear those words coming from "the other side".

That is strange to hear it from the other side. But then it reminds me of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding"

that seems strange.. I never thought about intermarriage from the other side...

Wow. That is pretty intersting. Helps me to look my sister (who married a goy) in a whole new light...

Thanks for posting.
