Brief encounter

Today, around the corner from my Manhattan apartment, two men in hassidic garb had a little table set up.

As I walked past, one of them said to me “Excuse me, are you Jewish?”

Responding in kind, I asked him “Are you Jewish?”

“Yes,” he replied.

“Funny,” I said, “you don’t look Jewish.”

And then I continued on my way.
