Dogs. Diapers. Brisket. A Passover Story

Monday, April 21st, 2008

By Larry Smith

Anyone who just enjoyed, or possibly survived, their family’s Passover Seder this past weekend can relate to SMITH member Mia’s essay in My Life So Far. Her story, Family Time, is ostensibly about coming home for the holidays and discovering that her sister’s bulldog is wearing a diaper (and who hasn’t been there?), but really about everything else that happens when grownups come home: regression, love, madness, brisket. Mia writes: “Now, having spent the first 30 minutes of our visit to my parents’ house trying to devise a way to keep the black cotton shorts—which were holding up the dog’s underwear, which contained a maxi-pad—Pampers didn’t seem like such a crazy idea after all.” If you only read one Passover story this week…
