The Other Side of the Story - Jump Rope To Conclusions
Jump Rope To ConclusionsIt was a beautiful spring night and the next day was a civil holiday, so I was off from work. I said to myself that I can't stay inside on this warm night, and so I grabbed my jump rope and water bottle and headed to the park.
Two days later, at the Friday night Shabbos meal, my brother said: "A co-worker told me that his wife saw you walking the street late at night carrying a beer bottle and a gun!"
Now, I ask you, why wouldn't she think to herself: "That's Morris; he can't be carrying a gun in the street." Instead, she assumed the worst and told her husband, who told my brother, and who knows who else!
