Strong as an Ox

Ruchama Schnaidman

Running a superstore involves a lot of work. Siman took a deep breath and pushed himself to run a little faster. “Keeps me fit and strong,” he hollered to Tov who pleaded with him to please, please slow down, “At least a bit.”

Tuesday, April 21, 2015

Iyar was quickly approaching and no matter how hard Siman tried, he simply could not come up with a Superstore Special for the upcoming month. “Grrr!” he muttered to himself as he pumped his arms. “Why can’t my brain think of one tiny idea?” After half an hour of running, Siman’s legs began to burn and he felt himself slow down. Before long, he heard Tov puffing behind him. “Finally,” Tov said as he ran alongside Siman. “What are you running away for?” “Running away?” Siman asked, because he would never admit to his brother that he was stumped. “I’m just as strong as an ox, that’s all.”
