In the sweat of your face
you shall eat bread
till you return to the ground.
[Genesis 3:19]
***********************
"Hey, Lord?"

"Yes, My precious?"

"Uh oh.
What did I do."

[SMILE.]

"This isn't about those
GREYHOUNDS, IS it, Lord?"

[CHUCKLE.]

"I really didn't mean it,
when I said You weren't
that powerful."

[NOD.]

"Although, I don't know
why You can't just breathe
on those guys, and make
that dog racing just go away.
It's not that much to ask."

"I know, My child."

"It does seem like You're
not as powerful, as You
used to be. But, that's
for another discussion."

[PATIENT NOD.]

"Anyhow, have You ever
looked at one 'a those
living wills, Lord?"

"Yes, My precious."

"What d'Ya THINK of them,
Lord?"

[SILENCE.]

"Yeah; I figured.
I knew You weren't going to
say anything."

[SMILE.]

"They're almost hilarious,
when you take the PLUNGE to
fill one of them out."

"Tell Me, child."

"Speaking of 'plunge',
I think it's the easiest for
fish. You know what I mean,
Lord?"

"Why is that, Mein kinder."

"Well, if you're a fish, you
swim around, get eaten, or
just 'up' and die. Then,
somebody flushes you down
the toilet. No big decisions
to make."

"True, child.
But, you are not a fish."

"Yeah. I wish I WAS one.
I'd like to be one of those big gold
fish: they're pretty, but tough,
and hardy. I'm neither."

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

"So, how do You like that one
question on the Living Will
form:

'If you're in a coma, or other
bad state, do you want the doctors
to give you food, food and water,
or just plain water?'


I think it's really funny, Lord.
I mean, do you get a choice of
root beer and spaghetti, a
small salad......or, just a plain
root beer?"

"That is a mystery, My precious."

(laugh!)
"My question is, do the doctors
charge you MORE, just because
they gave you some food, ALSO?"

[MORE PATIENT SILENCE.]

"Because, in that case, I had
to put down:

'No. I don't want any food.
Just water.'

I figured, why should I give
those sheisters anymore than
they're ALREADY gettin',
'Ya KNOW? I mean, I'm
gonna' die, anyway. I figure
they just doin' it, to get
some more money. To heck
with 'em. Better it should go
to an animal shelter."

"I understand, My precious."

"Do You think I'm being silly,
Lord?"

"No, My beloved."

"Which part, Lord:
the part about me making
fun of bein' in a coma,
or about the animal shelter,
or about all my discussions,
in GENERAL?"

"None of these, child."

"Hey, LORD?
When are You going to
do something about those
suffering greyhounds?"

"Soon, child.
Soon."
***************************
It is written,
Man shall not live
by bread, alone,
but by every word
that proceeds
from the
mouth of God.
[Matthew 4:4]
