2 Elul 5772
(Imaginary) Conversation heard around Mashiach's dinner table:
MDaughter: "I thought all the geulah bloggers and rabbis said 5772 was going to be the year that Mashiach comes. It's already Elul."
MSon: "And don't forget the Torah codes. Unfortunately, Bashar Assad did not fall in the month of Av, so how reliable is that?"
MWife: "The year is not over yet."
MWife: "But, even if 5773 comes and still Mashiach has not been revealed to the world, we will continue to watch and wait and pray with all our hearts."
