Somebody waves and says hello in your direction. You reply and wave, but then see he was actually talking to someone behind you. That's me, quite often lol.

You are walking along on your merry way. Suddenly, in your peripheral you see a woman, she seems attractive. You restrain yourself and proudly refrain from getting a better look. You continue on your carefree way proud of your discipline . She follows, her voice, footsteps, colorful dress are all playing on your senses. After a few moments unfortunately you lose the battle you fought so valiantly. You give in a turn your head ready to feast your eyes. But then you see what she really looks like...and you think - seriously? For her you lost? What a waste!!!

This is a very true thought we need to have in this whole struggle as the gemarah tells us:אשה חמת מלא צואה, ופיה מלא דם – והכל רצין אחריה (תלמוד בבלי, מסכת שבת, דף קנ"ב, עמוד א)
"If I am not for myself, who will be for me? But if I am only for myself, who am I? If not now, when?"

A few days ago, after putting on my tallis, I was getting ready to start putting on my teffilin shel yad. As my hand was doing the “pre-bracha tightening”, the guy in front of me was starting to put his tallis on. 
I then find myself saying the bracha of להתעטף בציצית on my teffilin.

I know this forum is supposed to be just for fun but...
I do the opposite thing many times and it really works...
I tell myself 'If I dont look, I will get schar as if she is the prettiest girl around'
But if I do look and she turns out to be a dud... I still looked...
(no achrayus for the schar in shamayim... but either way its more schar than looking...)
Hope for the best Prepare for the worst

I once read a story to that affect. About somebody fantasizing when he saw a limb though a window, and how it tormented him to no end. It turned out to be a frail old women in her nineties.

What's wrong with that? She's in the other bed every night in my house! (and I do wish it would be women....)
I'm all about that (substantial) bass, no trouble ....

Pleasure!
This has been on my mind for quite some time now (nearly every Friday night, lol), but for some reason, I never remembered to post it until it was too late

The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings
