Goofy Rosh Hashana stuff

Okay, I can see eating something sweet on Rosh Hashana to have a sweet year.
I've been told that you should avoid sleeping during the daytime on Rosh Hashana to avoid having a sleepy year. I think that's silly.

This is could get really out of hand. That's why I'm asking you, the silly people I know, to give me a list of things I should or should not do to help this coming year be good. Talk amongst yourselves.

Well, since silliness is involved, I can do no better than to pass along the wisdom displayed by a group of 3-yr-olds. (I used to work as an assistant in a gan in Dallas.) When the children were learning about Matan Torah, the teacher asked them what they would say if they had to make up their own Ten Commandments. Their responses went something like this:

- Hashem says don't steal (this was repeated several times)
- Hashem says listen to your mommy (this too had several takers)
- Hashem says don't hit/bite/kick (there were several variants on this)
- Hashem says share your toys
- Hashem says don't hide
- Hashem says cream cheese is good (this from a little girl who had to think very hard before coming up with something)
