Happy Purim, Kings and Queens

Dear Shayna B,

I just got a super cool new coat… or so I thought. I wore my brand new coat to school and all my friends started laughing at me. It’s a metallic silver puffer coat and I was soooo excited about it, but then the mean girls told me I look like I’m 5 years old. I turned 10 last week! My mom won’t let me get a new coat because I just got this one, but I don’t like it anymore! What should I do?

Sincerely, Embarrassed Emily

Dear Embarrassed Emily,

You’re like Queen Esther. Huh? Standing out like Esther did. And guess who Achashveirosh chose to be Queen? Esther. How is this related to your coat story? Esther was the prettiest. Achashveirosh thought she was the prettiest. Your coat is the coolest. Maybe everyone’s pretending to dislike your coat because they like it the most. Your coat story is also like Mordechai’s story. Mordechai didn’t bow to Haman. Mordechai stood out, your coat stands out. Esther and Mordechai and Achashveirosh saved the Jews. I’m not saying you’ll save the population or a nation, but at least your coat is cool.

Best of luck,

Shayna B.
