20. I went to a Yom Ha-Shoah celebration in New Haven one year.

And managed to miss the hourly bus back (it was on a Sunday), thereby compelling me to walk all the way back into town (New Haven is quite compact; maybe a mile and a half ).

Then there was the time an Autistic person I knew back in NYC went with me to the Jewish Museum in Carnegie Hill one afternoon. We went into the room that commemorates ha-Shoah. After a few seconds, she spun on her heel, walked out, and said -- out loud, a very big deal for her! -- "I don't want to be in there."
