"Gotta Bentch" or "Getta Bentch"?

Ever experience breadaphobia? It's when you don't want to make hamotzie because you don't want to have to bentch.

My wife and I have a little custom. When one of us says we "gotta bentch." The other responds, "You don't 'gotta bench.' You 'getta bentch!'"

Great post. It's an approach to Yiddishkeit like the one you illustrated that really shows people (and your kids) that a life of Torah u'Mitzvos is something to treasure. Yashar Koach!
