Tell it Straight

This is one of the deepest, deepest depths of Rebbe Nachman. How close do you have to be to a person to tell them something straight? Basically, a stranger can ask me, “How much is one and one?” I’ll tell him “two.” I don’t have to love him, and he doesn’t have to love me. I’ll just tell him “two.” But there is certain language which is only used when you love somebody very much. It’s the deepest depths, right? On the one hand, maybe it’s not as clear. But on the other hand, it’s so much deeper.

Joke of the day

Once there was an old man who was on his deathbed. He turned to his five children and said, “Please, before I die, run to Mama and bring me one last piece of her delicious cake.”

The five children ran desperately to fulfill their dying father’s last wish. Finally, after what seemed like an eternity to him, they returned with the news: “Sorry, Dad, but Mama said she’s saving the cake for after the funeral.”
