King David's Fan Club

King David probably looks down from Gan Eden and smiles every time my three year-old daughter gets on her little red tricycle and starts singing, "Davimehfikayon". It seems to be my daughter's favorite song while riding.

On Monday, my wife took the kids to an open gym to play. She later related that my daughter started singing this song at the top of her lungs while she rode care-free through a gym full of children. Recognizing the tune, another Jewish mother looked over at my wife, smiled, and said, "My daughter likes to sing that one too."

The loud singing later continued out in the parking lot as they left the gym....

"Shout it out! Shabbos is coming! We're so happy!"

Others may look at my daughter like she is from Mars. I just laugh at her amusing antics and shake my head. I only wish I could be there when she sings this song to random people. I would like to be able to turn to the staring people and ask, "What are you people doing?? It's Monday! Don't you know that Shabbos is coming? Get your crock pots out and start cooking your cholent for the next five days! Let's get with the program!"

Sweet story. If only we could all have the excitement for shabbat - and for yiddishkeit - that your daughter has!

Yes, it's still that childlike innocence, that joie de vivre, that your Little Miss Redhead displays so freely. Lovely...

Let just hope that "President" Katzav doesn't sell out King David's tomb for Holy Toledo!

Yitz: I agree. Perhaps we should send my daughter to see Katzav and throw a tempertandrum in his office.
