Love or like?

I think the meaning in what those kids were saying was more I love to eat hot dogs (or burgers or steaks) Certainly the only reason to have a hot dog is to eat it (or share it with a friend) Is this not part of the enjoyment of life? Certainly my experience is that these things are more enjoyable when shared. So the communal consumption of hot dogs or hamburgers or steaks is a joy doubled. This is because we are enjoying the company. This is appropriate and good. So don't be so hard on the kids when they say I love.... Keep in mind they love the experience of being with friends and enjoying the fat of the land just as G-d has commanded.

I always say to my kids. You love me not the hot dog.

Reminds me of a question for the ages.

Hot dogs, Armor hot dogs. What kind of kid eats Armor hot dogs? Hot dogs, Armor hot dogs. The dogs kids LOVE to bite. Now that's something else to think about. Personally, I'm a vegan so I don't love hot dogs. It's been a while since I have had a soy dog. But I must say I'm probably guilty of saying I love plain Silk, (soy milk). It's getting close to Rosh Hashana, I think I should confess that. I'm sorry. I'll try not to say it or think it again. Though I do enjoy drinking soy milk and it's a good clean kosher and healthy choice of protein. Thank G-d for plain Silk soy milk. But I must say I love you guys. And maybe I'll get to see you one day on the mission trip to Isreal. Please have it every year so maybe I can go on the next one. It sounds great. I want to say I love that idea, but I'm not sure that's kosher. Alan Drake Tyree

How can one love "it"?

I've always bothered when someone said "I love this/that/it" or whatever thing he or she meant. I find it inappropriate to love a thing, how can that possibly be? Things don't live, are dead matter, how can we love it? Unfortunately people, especially the kids and young, are so much exposed to the marketing engines of the "I'm lovin' it"-Companies today, that they stop thinking about language, our most powerful weapon. We have to teach our children, that they always have to consider more strongly what they say instead of just minic false examples.

In Hebrew it's the same!

Find it interesting to note that in Hebrew, the verbs "like" and "love" are the same exact word.
