The Hanukkah Hailstorm

Son wins the pile of gelt.

Big sister tosses her remaining pile of gelt toward Arthur.

She says.

Take the rest of it.

Little brother says.

I don’t want your charity.

Gelt Fight.

Little brother pelts his sister in the head with a hailstorm of her unwanted gelt.

Because my son identifies with Palestinian kids against welfare on Jewish holidays.

The End
