Me: Hey, Jimmy...How are you?
Jimmy (handing me my mail): Miss Jane...just a little crappola today.
Me (rolling my eyes if there's a lot of mail): Thanks, Jimmy. Have a good one.Earlier this week at the URJ Hanukkah party (where longtime employees are honored on their milestone anniversaries), Jimmy and I sat at the same table. When I got back to my seat after accepting a certificate and gift marking my decade with the Union, Jimmy told me that when he celebrated his fifth anniversary with the URJ, he received a kiddush cup. After 10 years, he received a chanukiah. What he told me next made me chuckle: Today, the kiddush cup hangs on the Vignapianos Christmas tree and the chanukiah sits on the mantle in their home.
Merry Chrismukkah, Jimmy...Merry Chrismukkah, indeed!
