SCHTUPPA (you can also spell it with an “h”)
It is late July or early August…..You are driving your daughter to her new college dormitory. She is beginning her freshman year in college and she will be away from home. As in the TV program MODERN FAMILY, you are concerned about your little girl who is growing up too fast.
Tell her to tell her boyfriend: “No chuppa, no schtuppa.”
“What does that mean,” she asks.
My reply to my daughter: “It is like the old adage: “Why buy the cow when you can get the milk free?”
Advice: Do NOT give the milk FREE!!! Go to the chuppa first.
See: chuppa (also spelled chuppah)
I am writing two Yiddish words of the day today because I missed yesterday’s BLOG.
