In a recent email from my mother:

Today's Inquirer reports the first cloning of a dog to have occurred at
Seoul National University. The success of this very delicate and
intricate transfer of DNA material on the cellular level is attributed
to the "Korean tradition of using steel chopsticks to eat food."

The Inquirer also said it was only 82 degrees in Seoul yesterday. Oye vey, what a mekhaye. But I bet it was humid.


(me-KHY-ye) n. Joy; delight; particularly delicious; great enjoyment; real joy; (dinner was a great ~); rapture; also: a great feeling, a relief, like taking off your shoes after an all-day hike.

The definitin and spelling of mekhaye were superb.
