Okay so let me sidetrack for a moment. Today I was speaking with this religious girl who is a former friend of mine. Here is what happened.
I asked her to look at my blog. She says "I don't care." So I said, "come on, as a friend." And she said, "we're not friends." I said "why?" she said "you argue too much."
Okay so I'll admit that I like to argue sometimes but, I am a good person and an amicable person. She was just being to use a non-academic word for a moment, pissy.
The thing is she thinks she is punishing me by not being friends with me anymore. Oh no, I can just feel the pain now.
This is what would happen if I end up with a religious girl for the rest of my life - I would eventually end up bored on one Shabbat and play a computer game. And then the religious girl would be like "waaaaah why are you playing this computer game, God will smite you! Its the Shabbos!"
And then I would be like, "oh my God its just a computer game." And then she would be like "And you are just a sinner!!!!!"
Honestly, who do these religious girls think they are. She is not punishing me by not being friends with me any more, she is SAVING me from future possible harassment; I'm not saying I was interested in her though, no one knows what the future will bring, and she saved me from this harassment, at least from her.
Now of course, nothing is possible. Boo hoo. I do not know how I can live! I take that back, yes I do know how I can live. Who do these religious girls think they are? I'd say something along the lines of self righteous.
Please, religious girls, save me your harassment. I prefer my weekends to be fun, which is one thing that synagogues don't understand either.
Note to synagogues- if you can't find a way for religion to be enjoyable you can't expect people to follow it. In being the house of worship for us Jews, it largely the responsibility of the synagogue to provide a POSITIVE experience in being religious, and that means that orthodox synagogues (I live in an area where orthodoxy is the norm) have to drop the current trend towards synagogues being places for only ascetic prayer, and start providing forums for socialization and having fun, or you are going to BORE people.
