I was having breakfast this morning at Bristol Farms (two eggs and a pancake) wearing my new Talbot t-shirt. Two older ladies were seated at the table next to me. As I prepared to leave, one asked me if I was preparing to be a rabbi. Apparently "Talbot" sounds Jewish. I told them that, No, I was not preparing to be a rabbi--I was a protestant preparing to be a professor. After doing some speed-shopping (the bus was coming...eek!), I walked to the bus and realized, maybe I am preparing to be a rabbi--a protestant Christian rabbi. After all, a rabbi is a teacher of the faith of Abraham and that is what I am preparing to be. Funny.
