I smiled on the bus this morning at a man I recognize from my neighborhood.
I know he has Tourette's syndrome - have heard him say things that were not nice but could tell it was not on purpose - and we have exchanged pleasantries in the past.
He asked me how I'm doing and where the messiah is already - when will he be here??
I said "Soon, I hope - G-d willing today!"
After a minute or two the man went over to the bus driver. Now, bus drivers can often be testy, especially in traffic.
The man asked him when the messiah is coming.
The driver looked at his watch and said "in an hour and a half - two hours tops."
With G-d's help. Amen.
