The First Day of School

	A Jewish mother sent her son off to his first day of 
	school with the customary pride and precautionary 
	advice: "So bubeleh, you'll be a good boy and listen 
	to the teacher? And you won't make noise, bubeleh, and 
	you'll be very polite and play nice with the other 
	children. And when it's time to come home, you'll 
	button up warm, so you won't catch cold, bubeleh. And 
	you'll be careful crossing the street and come straight
	home..." etc. etc.

	Off the little boy went.

	When he returned that afternoon, his mother hugged him 
	and kissed him and exclaimed, "So did you like school, 
	bubeleh? You made new friends? you learned something? 
	Yeah. Said the boy. I learned my name is Irving."
