I must still be sleeping while awake..I MEANT to say: can you please email me new yiddish words to learn? I know the most common 20. but today, I was writing and schmutz came to mind. Love saying the word. it's so perfect! I ask only if you do this sort of thing like a newsletter blast - if not please don't bother just for me. Thanks! sAlly
