Last night was my first ever Passover Seder. I believe most Jewish people celebrate on Saturday, but adamselzer isn’t a very strict Jew, and I, of course, am not Jewish at all, and Sunday was when most people could make it. I got to spend the evening with a bunch of new Chicago friends.
It was cool. The Seder has lessons and reflections that everyone can learn from. Adam’s LJ entry from a few days ago goes more in depth. Me? I just have the pictures. You might want to grab a bite to eat before clicking the cut.
Today marked a major milestone for me. Actually, a couple.
As regular readers know, I have been nervous about driving in Chicago. I drive an average of one mile a week, and that’s to the grocery store and ALDI. Adam’s always been with me.
Today, I drove out to the suburbs, by myself, and I used the highway. It was easy once I got back in the groove. I think I also missed a lot of the heavy rush hour. And Chicago drivers aren’t quite as scary as the cab drivers. Still scary, though. Way more aggressive than in Ohio. Eek.
Still, I’m proud. I made it. YAY.
Tomorrow, I will reward myself with McDonalds for lunch.
