Kol hakavod, boy!

Apparently not satisfied with bossing two little sibs around, Rimonit decided yesterday (and Kinneret immediately followed suit) to extend her orders to anyone she could see outside the window.

It was after their bath, and they were both standing on Rimonit's bed in their bathrobes (the better to see - and shout - out the window) when Rimonit calls out: "Everyone who's outside has to go home now so you can go to sleep!" (Kinneret: "Everyone go home!").

R: "If you don't go home you'll have to sleep on the street!" And then, catching sight of someone at the bus stop across the street: "The boy is waiting for the bus so he can go home. Kol hakavod, boy!"
