My Brother's in NY

Well, not now, but he was yesterday. He went up for a friend's chasunah yesterday, and he came back this morning. Apparently he had an interesting time. He spoke to an older Jewish couple in the airport, and the husband had asked if he was going to a chasunah. (Since he was dressed up in a suit with a tie and cufflinks, I guess it was kind of obvious) The wife pointed to the book my brother was reading and said that she had read it a few years ago and it was a very good book. (Note: the book was Lions on Lucerene, by Brad Thor, not exactly the kind of book you would picture her reading, he said)At the chasunah, a woman approached him (she was the chosson's aunt) and said "Hi, I'm friendly. Want to play Jewish Geography?" My brother found out that he stinks at Jewish Geography. He was one of the last to leave, and the chosson's parents drove him to the airport. He stayed awake all night, till he got on his flight at 5:40 this morning. Then he slept. He knew he couldn't fall asleep in the airport, because once he falls asleep. nothing short of an earthquake will wake him up. Anyways, he had fun, and it was his first wedding. All is good now.

"Hi, I'm friendly. Want to play Jewish Geography?"

She doesn't sound like a NY-er.

Well, she's the chossons's aunt, and since my brother knows the chosson from down here, I'm guessing she is an out-of-towner, probably a floridian. Those were her exact words by the way.

Was it the Simanowitz (sp?) wedding?
I was there too, and if it was I think I met your brother and your sister used to be friends with mine.

Hey, looks like we're playing Jewish geography right now!

Frum Punk; Simanowitz...the name sounds RWALLY familiar so it might have been. You probably did meet him, or see him at one point. If I know my brother, he was in the thick of the dancing. And...I don't HAVE a sister. So you're probably thinking of someone else. Oh, and my brother and I look almost nothing alike.
End of World: I didn't say I stink at it, my brother does. I played it with someone and found out she was the aunt of one of my seminary teachers. Go figure.

Well we talked and he didnt know me but recognized my last name because his sister knew mine. Maybe it was you? Doubtful, as my oldest sisters 17 and you're in college. Guess it was someone else.

I'm friendly with quite a few girls who are younger than me. In BYM, I "worked" with a lot of girls younger than me. 17 is only four years younger, so she would have been in 8th grade when I graduated. Maybe I did know her, and was friends with her. Care to e-mail me your last name, maybe I'll recognize it. makdragon at gmail dot com.
