As I’m sure you’re aware, good military advisors are hard to come by these days.
This may explain why Our Shiputzim is – to the best of my knowledge – one of the very, very few J-blogs out there to have a military advisor on staff.
But this also explains why the past year has been rather, um, challenging for the Our Shiputzim team.
Because, you see, in a move which should be viewed as a cautionary tale for other bloggers looking to hire their own military advisors, Be-All-You-Can-Be and his family spent the past twelve months abroad (i.e. in chu”l, for the Hebraically-oriented amongst you) - no doubt on a top-secret mission pertaining to this blog...
And so, I’m thrilled to announce that the Be-All-You-Can-Be family returned home to Israel last week, thus proving all the naysayers wrong and showing that, with enough willpower, “rak l’shanah” can actually be done. (Insert: Requisite joke about the Israelis in the elevator…)
Bruchim haba’im, guys! We’re so glad that you’re back!
