And God said to Noah...
make yourself an ark
of gopher wood. [Genesis 6:
13-14]
***********************
"NOAH!"

"Yes, LORD?"

"We have a problem."

"WHAT? I DID everything
that You ...SAID! Everybody's
safely here...on the
ARK!"

FROWN.
"Noah, it is one of
your daughters-in-law.
She has disobeyed Me."

"Which ONE,
LORD? The pretty,
robust, athletic one?
The very fair one
with lovely eyes,
and flaxen skin?
Or...the plump,
whiny one...who always squints,
and TRIPS over everything?"

STERN, ALBEIT PATIENT, FROWN.
POINT, AND NOD.
"That one,
My Noah."

"Oh."
Noah slumped down beside
one of the elephants,
and buried his head
in his hands. They smelled of
dirty hay, and fresh
hay, too. One of the elephants
nuzzled Noah's head with his huge
snout.
"Oh.
Yes, LORD!
I know about...her!"

"Noah, I gave you
very explicit instructions,
and commands."

"I'm sorry, LORD!
I was BUSY! And..
she scooted them BY
me! Why that son
of mine...picked HER,
I'll never KNOW!"

PATIENT FROWN.
"This is very serious,
Noah. There were only
to be two-by-two;
you were given very strict
instructions."

"LORD! You KNOW
how she is! That one
daughter-in-law
of mine is INCORRIBLE!
She's just crazy about
CATS!"

STERN SILENCE.

"But....I think she
only sneaked in...maybe,
just an extra one, or
TWO."

FROWN.
SILENCE.

"More than two?"

"Yes, Noah.
Several, in fact.
I am very disappointed
in you."

"What can we DO,
LORD? The ark's
already gone afloat!
And...You've already
shut the DOOR!"

SILENCE.

"What do You want
me to do: open the
Door, and toss all the
extra kitties...out?"

"Oy vey z'mir."

"What, LORD?"

"She took in several
extra puppies, as well."

"Uh, oh.
Uh, oh."

NOD.
"Yes, Noah.
That daughter-in-law
of yours has disobeyed Me."

"Oh, LORD!
Please don't take it out
on her! It's MY fault!
I wasn't paying enough
attention! It's all
MY fault!"

"Noah,
I AM.
And,
I must be Just."

"Uh, oh."

"It must Be.
All these extra animals...
and, she sneaked others
on board, as well."

"OTHERS?"

NOD.
"Ducklings, chicks,
baby deer, two extra
baby hippos, five more
baby bats, and even
four extra polar bear
cubs."

"Oh, no!"

"Yes,
My Noah.
And, more.
Baby pandas, a whole
pocket of kangaroos,
miniature alligators,
and more....
much more."

"Oh....LORD!
I'M SORRY!"

"Well....this is
very serious, Noah.
Justice must be DONE."

"Oh, LORD!
No...no!"

FIRM NOD.
SOLEMN FROWN.
"For all generations,
the children of this
one son, and DAUGHTER-in-law of yours...
shall all squint,
speak with whiny voices,
and trod the ground..."

"Oh, no!
LORD! No!"

Wave of a Mighty Hand.
"With....
flat
feet."
********************
Noah and his sons....
and Noah's wife,
and the three wives
of his sons...entered
the ark.
[Genesis 7:13]
