The One Song I Make Sure My Children Know

In my house, the stamping of the foot is more often then not followed by the whining voice of “Uff. It’s not fair.”

To which I sweetly respond:”Life isn’t fair.”

Probably one of the most obnoxious answers a parent can answer their offspring who are convinced that life has given them lemons.

When they continue with their rant and rave of “It’s not fair” or “I wanted…” I start belting away with the hit song from The Rolling Stones, “You Can’t Always Get What You Want…”

It doesn’t make their lives any happier or fairer. It doesn’t make them get what they want either. What it does do is stop their whining (most probably because they want me to stop singing). Guilty as charged.

And so without further ado I give you this week’s Shono Comic. Enjoy it! I live through it everyday!

Shabbat Shalom
