Going To The Ohel

I'll be going, IY"H, to the ohel this thursday for yud shvat. I went last week also, on Erev Rosh Chodesh, which is Yom Kippur Katan, in case you haven't heard any of the Rosh's speeches. For us that were in yeshiva in L.a., it's basically an L.A. Yom Tov. When I went, the ground was freezing my toes! You don't wear shoes, and I could've worn sandals but didn't. I actually like the feeling of my feet numbing while I'm davening there. It's kind of an act of Bitul, showing that you'll do anything to have your prayers answered. 
So if you see me there this Thursday, let me pass you in line, k?
