Last year, while living in Teaneck, New Jersey, I visited Keter Torah, the synagogue next door to my house, with my daughter. Because it’s an Orthodox synagogue, the men and women sit separately. Afterward, Sylvia told me: "I saw two women in leopard-skin pill-box hats!"
"I wonder if they’re both Bob Dylan fans," I mused.*
*Here’s the last verse from the Bob Dylan song, "Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat":
I see you got a new boyfriend.
You know, I never seen him before.
Well, I saw him makin’ love to you;
You forgot to close the garage door.
You might think he loves you for your money,
But I know what he really loves you for —
It’s your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat!
