Like all of us, I’m not as young as I used to be. But last night I noticed that one of my ways of recognizing my limitations is to call a halt to the eating of matzah. I was never crazy about matzah but when there’s no bread allowed, matzah seemed to be the closest thing.
Last night, at our sedar, I moved to matzah and found just a few hours later that I was really feeling uncomfortable. For breakfast, instead of my cereal I had a board of matzah and butter, my traditional fare for the first Passover breakfast. Again, I started feeling uncomfortably bloated as I made my way to the gym.
So. looks like I will be without bread and matzah this week.
Might be a good thing to take a break from the leven and unleven breads.
