By popular demand (and to prove again that sane is boring) here is another look into conversations Vera and Sophia have across the Atlantic.
Thank you Viber
Sophia: Forget about Thanksgivukkah. Do you know what happens on March 17?!
Vera: Sct. Patrick’s Day. Like every year?
Sophia: well… look!!!
(links to picture above)
Sophia: It’s the Irish! And the Jews!
Sophia: All my peoples!
Sophia: don’t [editorial note: Vera calls people dude. Sophia is trying to get her to stop. At least with her. Vera then threatened to call her sister suffragette, but that is too long. So she defaults into dude. a lot]
Vera: dudette, you *can not* be Irish too
Sophia: oh, but i so can!
Vera: no way! you can’t claim both Ireland and Spain as yours. [editorial note: Sophia has a Spanish last name. From before her family got expelled in 1492. She’s still bitter about that but proud of her Sephardic heritage.]
Sophia: And Portugal. And Scandinavia. And all things Jewish
Vera: see what I mean?
Sophia: Hey – real friends let other friends claim ALL THE COUNTRIES
Vera: Ok. you can be irish-spanish-jewish queen of all the lands
Sophia: Excellent. I shall rule with wisdom and benevolence
Vera: I am sure
Sophia: So, how bummed out are you that you’re not in Jerusalem this year for St. Pur-Trick?
Vera: Devastated. Not even joking.
Sophia: I know. But next year…
Vera:…. go ahead. Say it.
Sophia: Next year in Jerusalem!
Vera: whoop whoop
