A mother is walking by the seashore with her son. Suddenly a huge wave crashes down on them and a riptide carries her son away. Hoping for a miracle, she looks up to heaven and promises she’ll do anything to have her son back: keep kosher, go to synagogue every Saturday, even be kind to her husband. Just as suddenly another wave comes crashing down, depositing her son at her feet, still alive and happy. She looks up to heaven once more and cries out, “Where’s his hat? He was wearing a hat!”
