Bentcher w/Shema.

-Deck of cards.


-Advil, Tums, and a first-aid kit. We don’t know what we think is going to happen, but it never hurts to be prepared.

-An emergency late-Friday-afternoon sewing kit featuring mostly safety pins.

-Pajamas they left at the last sheva brachos. Make sure this bag goes to the right person, or you’ll get confused comments. “The pajamas you packed weren’t my size. But I wore them anyway.”

Basically, when designing your bag, you should assume your guests have never gone away before and will bring nothing. They basically showed up and are just now realizing that they have zero luggage. Or else they didn’t do a great job parking and they can’t get the tailgate of their van open.


Have a question for “You’re Asking Me?” Put it in my gift bag.
