Helloooooo, Our Shiputzim fans!
The Our Shiputzim reservations department has informed us that the response to our recent invitation has not been as overwhelming as we may have hoped.
To that end, we turned to our PR department and asked them to help out in this regard.
The PR department, in turn, said that they have two words for us:
Huh?, we naturally said.
The PR people patiently replied that our potential guests are probably loath to serve as guinea pigs. In other words, no one wants to be the first person to stay in our “newly renovated guest suite” - if I may quote a RL (real life) friend of ours. The solution, the PR people explained, is to have some beta testers stay here in TRLEOTB (the real life equivalent of this blog). Assuming that the testers would provide positive feedback on their stay, we would then be able to allay some of our potential guests’ concerns.
And, so, this past Shabbat we did just that. Friends of ours were making a simchah over Shabbat, and we hosted some of their guests.
Little did these guests know that they were actually here as beta testers.
In any event, you will all be pleased to learn that they assured us that they were very comfortable. In fact, the commenter named “INeedAC” (known to long-time readers of this blog for his Swedish language skills) will be glad to know that the unwitting testers remarked – unprompted - that it was “very nice and cool.”
And so, there you have it.
We once again remind our readers that the Our Shiputzim reservations department is waiting for your call…
