Pretty Woman

Hey everyone. After a month of holidays, swimming, screaming and fighting, I'm finally back here in Israel. The shofar has been blown - now let the party begin. Yingele's life is okay, nothing really changed. My parents have realized (damn!) that money doesn't grow on trees, so yingele is supposed to get some knowledge, wisdom and eventually a piece of paper that might get him a job. Not sure what, where and when but I might have some extra free time for studying and all of that. Oh well, we'll see what happens with that.

It's motse shabbos, 4.23 am. I just had a disgusting burger and finished watching Love Actually and now Pretty Woman. (I know.... Girlie girlie movies - ober vus ken men tien.) I'm most definitely in a crazy mood, so not sure if this will make any sense in the morning.

Any of you see the movie Pretty Woman? Well, basically, it's the Cinderella story of a hooker who falls in love. It has the same My Fair Lady style - transforming a billige and proste prostitute into a beautiful and pretty woman, a woman shining with class and style. From shlepping on the roads in a mini skirt and chewing gum, she became the elegant queen, all dressed in Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Chanel.

If prostitutes can become princesses, maybe little yingele can still become a someone. Maybe there is still hope that he can change, and will change. Maybe, just maybe.

Or does this only happen in movies?

Have a nice week everyone, it's lovely being back home.
