My sheep
hear
My voice
and
I know them
and
they
follow Me.
[John 10:27]
***********************
"WELL?"

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

(Shout to the ceiling.)
"WELL?
NU*?"

[PATIENT SMILE!]

"So.....LORD?"
(Thoughtful squint.)
(Cranky face.)
"I MEAN......
JESUS?"
(Hopeful look up at the ceiling.)
"What HAPPENED?"

[GENTLE CHUCKLE.]
"To what,
My beloved?"

(Irritable face.)
"To my PETITION!
MY PETITION?
REMEMBER?"

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

(Kvetchy voice.)
(Whiny, loud voice.)
"REMEMBER?
I ASKED YOU
TO PESTER
THE FATHER,
ABOUT SOMETHING?"

[PATIENT NOD.]
"And,
what was
that,
My precious?"

(Irritable squint.)
(Cranky stare up at ceiling.)
"What we TALKED
ABOUT...
the other DAY!"
(Impatient squirm.)
"MY DREAMS!
MY BAD DREAMS!"

[SMILE.]
"Ah.
Yes."
[NOD.]

(Impatient frown!)
"WELL?
What.. HAPPENED?
DID HE SAY 'NO'?
AS USUAL?"

[CALM VOICE.]
"Tell Me,
again,
child."

"WHY?
WHY DO I HAVE
TO GO THROUGH
THE WHOLE
MAGHILLAH**,
all...OVER,
AGAIN?"

[DELIGHTED SMILE!]
[PATIENT SILENCE.]

"WHY?
Don't You keep
NOTES,
or ANYTHING?"

[SILENCE.]

"How many TIMES,
do I have to
make a PETITION?"
(Woeful gaze up at
ceiling fan.)

[SILENCE.]

"WHY?
Is it cuz,
I'm JEWISH?
You're makin'
me, WORK HARDER?"

[BURST OUT LAUGHING!]

(Sassy look,
up at the ceiling.)
"WELL?
SHOULD I JUST
FORGET ABOUT IT?"

[SMILING, PATIENTLY.]
[TENDER VOICE.]
"Just talk
to Me,
child.
Talk
to
Me."
*********************
I
and
My Father
are
One.
[John 10:30]
