I Love Love Love Guys Who Speak Yiddish

From our reader Whitney, who is meshuggeneh about liking guys that drop Yiddish phrases:
I love love love boys who use Yiddish in conversation. It doesn't matter if he is schvitzing in this heat, complaining about schlepping his laundry, or talking about how his boss got everything all fachadick, it makes my foolish heart skip a beat.

Whether he's a goy or a member of the tribe, slipping those little gems into our conversation belies a sort of wry, anachronistic, twinkle-in-the-eye charm and a cursory cultural awareness that makes me a little weak in the knees.

So keep on keepin' on, boys. You're making this shiksa all verklempt.
I'd settle for a guy that just liked bagels.
