Esther invites the king and Haman to a party. Haman returns home from the party and calls his wife and his loved ones and says (Esther 5):
אף לא הביאה אסתר המלכה עם המלך אל המשתה אשר עשתה...
Esther did not bring a nose with her and the king to the party that she made ..
A few questions (please answer as many as you can):
- Was Haman expecting a specific nose belonging to someone, or any nose? Whose nose?
- Why was Hman expecting Esther to bring a nose to the party?
- Why didn't Esther bring a nose?
- (Related to previous Q) If Esther was trying to upset Haman, it would be understandable for her NOT to bring a nose. But, Haman was happy that she forgot the nose. So, what was behind Esther's thinking?
