In the mornings, while I eat my oats, I watch CNN. When the news is uninteresting or the news anchors start being funny instead of presenting news, I switch to NBC’s The Today Show.

Plastic surgery was one of the subjects and obviously Joan Rivers was invited as the guest. She was funny most of the time, especially when talking about her surgeries and making comments about a biker jacket covering her large body parts. It was really interesting to watch her demonstrate re gifting ideas.

One idea stuck in my mind. What should you say when by mistake you give back the same exact gift to the person that gave it to you? Joan said something like: “Dear, I liked your gift so much, that I bought one for you too”.

The next section was about wine tasting and being able to find cheap wine that tastes like the expensive one. The secret was to buy a cheap wine from the same producer who makes both, expensive and cheap wine. Joan literally blew it. She spat out one of the cheaper wines.

I almost forgot the most important reason for writing about Joan. She is very short. That fact reminded me another short Jewish lady that I met many years ago. She was hired as a receptionist at a factory where I worked. She was short and constantly giggling. Anywhere she happen to be, there was a giggling crowd of few people surrounding her. Nobody was able to work. Her laughter was so contagious that she was let go in about a week. She left laughing. Often when things are not going right, I try to remember the short Jewish lady and her attitude toward life.
