Don't go near a woman
We made it! Today is the 47th and antepenultimate day of the omer, and the first of the shloshet yemei hagbalah, the three days of preparation for Shavuot. (Hagbalah is from the same root as gevul, border. Hagbeil et hahar, set boundaries around the mountain.) Be ready for the third day, and don't touch the mountain (or you'll die).
