Having one now.
We are quite parched, searching through the dunes, trying to find some nourishment.
Okay a bit corny. But I have noticed that this is the term women use when discussing with friends the absence of phone calls for their shidduch age daughters, "we're having a dry spell right now".
Are boys* having a torrential downpour? Gale of sorts? Raining buckets?
*When are they called men? When they are financially independent? Shaving more than once a week?
My mother recently attended her 50th high school reunion, this is how she spoke about it:
"Wow, I just spoke to the organizer, 73 girls are coming!"
Me: That's amazing. How many girls can't come? (maybe it's past curfew)
Mom: Well, 11 are dead. 3 are in wheelchairs, two are nursing sick husbands, and one we can't find. She disappeared.
I would have said, maybe she is in the mall, since girls can get lost there, but I thought it might be disrespectful
and as usual, the end of my post has nothing to do with the title.
