Fact #1: There is a town called Temple in Texas. Fact #2: I have a very Jewish surname but was raised Catholic. I know very little about Judaism and rarely even consider the fact that most people assume I’m Jewish when they meet me.

My wife and I are at a party in Houston and mention to someone that we’ve just moved to Austin.

Acquaintance: “Have you been to temple yet?”

They meant, of course, a synagogue.

Me: “We drove through one time, but we didn’t stop.”
