Morris is hungry for theater. Gertie is hungry, well, for pastrami?
Each week Rochelle Wisoff-Fields posts a pic to write a 100 word story about. This week’s photo is:
Gertie and Morris On Stage
Gertie, why are you so upset?
You know why, Morris.
I never get anything right with you, Gertie.
You’d get it right if you’d listen.
Listen, shmishen. I heard you.
What did you hear, Morris?
You said while we’re in New York you wanted to go to the stage.
I said I wanted to eat at the Stage.
So we’ll go to the concession stand. I’ll buy you something.
Oy, Morris. I wanted to eat at the Stage Deli*, not the concession stand at some cut-rate
play you got half price tickets for on a Wednesday afternoon, you schlep!!!!

* The Stage Deli, once a world-famous Jewish delicatessen and home to many celebrities, like so many Jewish delicatessens, sadly, closed November 2012.
Gertie will actually have to settle for Katz’s deli. Which, on the whole, is pretty good, too.
