|Dad and I in intense conversation|
|The horseradish root is a little funny |
Growing up my family didn't eat spicy hot food, but my dad's Passover horseradish was the exception. It was only perfect if it cleared our nasal passages and brought tears to our eyes. There was always an unofficial contest to see who could pile the most horseradish on their gefilte fish and pretend it wasn't too hot for them. And every year, without fail, our Uncle Al Klein would say through teary eyes and some sweat on his brow "So this is why the Jews have suffered all these years". And every year, we would all laugh.
