Public Service Announcement

In case you saw me on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, New York City, during the two days of Shemini-‘Atzeret, you didn't actually see me, just someone who looks like me. I was in Upstate New York wearing a heavy winter coat and winning a bidding war for the honor of being the Torah's groom. And not in that Shabbetai Tzevi way, either.

Yeah, I know. I ran into the other you on Amsterdam and 111th St. on Shabbes morning.

I really can't tell you guys apart from your appearance, but I can tell your voices apart.

Lol! That's really amusing that people thought they saw you.

You ever need someone to do stuff in public that Steg doesn't do, just call me.

Tell me more about this Shabbesai Tzvi way.... it sounds... zesty?

You want zesty, remember:
when it comes to false messiahs, Frankists have more fun!
But i sincerely hope Frank never did anything like this.

I don't know the details, but Shabbetai Tzevi had some kind of marriage ceremony between him and the Torah.

Yeh, I saw him in the rafters at RO. Then he snuck up on me, and it sure looked like you.... but we'll believe you when you say you were up north.

You two should really talk more.. makes it easier to deflect the random folks walking up to you..

My brother and I looked so much alike that often people would engage me in conversation about chess, going on for several minutes, before I could interject that they had made a mistake - the chess champion was the OTHER person who looked like me.

He, on the other hand, often complained that his friends were huffy because he had not recognized them in passing ('lordy, who are all these goofy looking dweebs trying to catch my eye?!?!').
