"Oh, hi there, Rabbi. I just happened to be passing by and noticed that you were howling.
I myself, am quite the howling hobbyist, so I hope you don't mind if I take this opportunity to show-off my pipes to these good people.
...Well, then, I'll leave you to enjoy your Rosh Hashanah thingy.
If what I hear about your tradition is true, then you'll be doing this on a daily basis for 30 days. I'll be totally here for you, Rabbi."
