Letter to Egypt
Friday the 13th is normally just a simple superstition. In fact, most Fridays that fall on the 13th have nothing too eventful happen. But on the most recent Friday the 13th, one particular news article came to my attention. It immediately made me think about a similar story from years ago. The signs are all there, pointing to a potential disaster. So I created this open letter to Egypt:
To Whom It May Concern,
I’m writing this letter to you, the rulers/governors/presidents/etc. of Egypt, because I feel that you must be warned. In case you missed your own weather report, snow has fallen in Cairo. Obviously, with all the talk of global warming, this should not be happening. I mean, c’mon, you’re in a desert.
Now, I don’t want to point any fingers, but have you recently ignored a frog infestation? Has your drinking water become red and coppery tasting? Is there currently a man (maybe named Mo-something?) with a staff urging you to let his people go? If so, I urge you to concede to his demands before Passover.
P.S. If you let his people go, I wouldn’t recommend following.
