Baruch Hashem!

This entry was posted in Culture, History on by .

I say Baruch Hashem a lot. It means, basically, thank God, and since I went to a very religious high school I got used to using that expression to punctuate all of my conversations. Baruch Hashem, I got a good parking spot! Baruch Hashem, I totally aced my gemara final.

Here are some other completely appropriate uses for Baruch Hashem:
Baruch Hashem, Rabbi Cohen didn’t notice that my skirt is totally not tznius.
Baruch Hashem, my matzah balls came out so fluffy!
Baruch Hashem, I met some really cute yeshiva boys on Ben-Yehuda last night.
Baruch Hashem, I got awesome tickets to the Justin Bieber concert.
Baruch Hashem, the protests in Egypt were successful.
Baruch Hashem, I am getting really good at the Dougie.
Baruch Hashem, I’ve seen 7 of the 10 Best Picture nominees.
Baruch Hashem, my barista gave me extra foam.
Baruch Hashem, I got totally awesome deals at the YU Seforim sale.

Something to not say baruch hashem about? When you google baruch hashem the first things that come up are almost all shuls for non-Jews, who I guess are really into saying Baruch Hashem. I don’t get it.

Finally, one more thing to say baruch hashem (and, obviously, mazel tov) about:

    So, I will never get tired of hearing “mazal tov” auto-tuned, just as an FYI.

    What else can we auto-tune? A shofar? Surely, surely, one of us has tried to auto-tune a recording of a shofar blast. Please say yes.
