In spite of her best intentions, Saucy just couldn't get her act together for Easter weekend. Proving once again that little Jewish girls should really mind their own business at this time of year.
When making lemon cupcakes for Veto, she forgot to fill them with the delicious lemon curd filling that she made, the same lemon curd that required a trip to the market for just one more lemon. You know the stuff. She just had to make it. And with the leavened cupcakes. Oy vey.
When she and Loopy were assembling baskets to deliver around town, they fussed and fought with that nasty basket netting. You know the stuff. It makes you grumpy and you say very bad words. The Rabbi would not approve, of more than just the vocabulary.
It was decided to deliver the basket in the middle of the night would be the thing to do. After Saturday Night Live they ventured out. It was dark. Apparently it was too dark to read the tags because Saucy really wasn't cut out to be an Easter bunny... it must be a sign that the Rabbi does not approve. The wrong baskets were left on the wrong doorsteps.
Adding insult to injury, the interior light of the Jeep would not turn off and things like that just drive Saucy crazy. Adding insanity to insult and injury, Saucy was hopelessly and completely lost... in her small city. It was another sign from God: Easter is not your holiday, girlfriends. Go home and sit Seder already. Oy!
It worked out. At least Sassy got her little special cheer-up basket with SweetTarts and a bunny with a baby that reminded Loopy and Saucy of Sassy and The Sprout. Things started to look up as the sun rose.
Oh, and the sandwiches. Saucy put smoked ham in the sandwiches. That's tomorrow's story, she'll tell you about the sandwiches tomorrow. That reminds Saucy of a little story her Rabbi told her once. After hearing about how delicious chops and spare ribs were, he decided he simply had to have a taste. He flew to a very remote island, took a room at a nice resort and made way to the restaurant where he ordered the most expensive pork dish on the menu.
As he eagerly awaited his meal, he heard his name called. Who does he see but ten members of his Congregation, who, his luck, are staying at the same spot. Just then, the waiter appeared carrying a huge roasted pig with an apple in its mouth.
The Congregants agape, the Rabbi (who was always a quick thinker) said, "Oy! Order an apple in this place, and look how they serve it?"
It's an old joke. Saucy apologizes.
The girls made it to see Hannah Montana The Movie in the afternoon. What can they say? All the malls were closed. They forgot. Remember, it's not really their holiday. The movie was so incredibly cute and sweet and funny and if you keep this in mind: it's Hannah Montana after all, and you keep your expectations in line with that mantra, you will likely enjoy it also. Saucy thought she was all over and done with enjoying movies purely for the sets, the costumes and the cameo appearances but apparently not. Oh, and the Hoedown Throwdown didn't hurt.
