even if He hadn't split the sea...

the pt: i feel like ice cream.

fudge: i'll bet you do. you only ate half of your supper.

the pt (clasping her hands together like those little praying angel figurines they sell in the mall): pleeeeeeaaaaassse?

fudge: eh.

the pt: oh, please please pleeeeeeeeaaaaaasssseee?

fudge: oh, fine. but don't eat it in the living room.

the pt: ok!

fudge: alright, here you go. don't say i never gave you anything.

the pt (dismayed): but it's so short!

fudge: kid, it's a scoop and a half. i know you. you never finish anything.

the pt: but it's just so little!

fudge: you finish that, you can have more.

the pt: oh, but -

fudge: hey. you get what you get and you don't get upset.

the pt (thinking): yeah...that is what the morah says...

(finally, with a sigh): oh well. dai dai daiyenu.

We use the "get what you get" line out here in Los Angeles, too. Wonder how those things spread across the country. Maybe it's that newfangled Internet.

Surprisingly, the line works most of the time.
