Keeping kosher in Tacoma

Bar mitzvah congratulations today to Nikolai P., son of my cool colleague out at Juvy.

This Temple Beth El goyishe moment courtesy of my 8-year-old: in the buffet line at the reception, Joe points to the Nova lox and says, "I'd like some of that please;" I ask the boy, "are you sure, honey, that's fish" and Joe replies, "Fish? I thought it was ham." Sotto voce, thank G-d.
