And
God saw
that
it
was good.
[Genesis 1:18]
***********************
"Hey........LORD?"

[SILENCE.]

"LORD?"

[SILENCE.]

"HEY!
It's almost SUNDAY!
Aren't You supposed to
be TALKIN' to ME?"

[SILENCE.]

"Oh.
(Thoughtful pause.)
That's right.
I forget: I'm Jewish.
(Squint.)
So.....weren't Ya supposed
to be talkin' to me,
all day TODAY?"

[PATIENT SIGH.]
[SHAKE HEAD, PATIENTLY.]

(Frown!)
"Oh, FORGET it!
Don't WORRY about it!
(Pout!)
I know You don't EXIST!
(Stick tongue out at air conditioning
vent.)

[SOLMEN NOD.]
[PATIENT SMILE OF A LOVING FATHER.]

"What?
WHAT, LORD?
(Squint.)
(Listen.)
WHAT?"

[SILENCE.]

"Ya know.......LORD?
I just saw a MOVIE about the
making of 'Jurasic Park'!"

[NOD.]

"Did You ever SEE that
MOVIE?"

[CHUCKLE.]
[SMILE.]
"Yes, child."

"Ya DID?
(Frown.)
That's weird.
(Yell up at air vent.)
Well......what'd Ya THINK of IT?"

[PATIENT VOICE.]
"You don't have to
shout, child:
I'm right Here."

"WELL?"

[GENTLE SMILE.]

"SO?
WELL?
WHAT'D YA THINK OF IT?"

[GENTLE LAUGH!]
"Very good, child.
Very good."

"So.............LORD?
(Turn to face air vent.)
Did they REALLY EXIST
65 million YEARS AGO,
or WHAT?"

"Who, child."

"The DI-NO-SAURS!
What'd Ya think I'm
TALKIN' ABOUT?"

"What does My Word say,
little one?"

"Eh.......seven DAYS?
That Ya did everything
in SEVEN DAYS?"

"No."
[PATIENT SIGH.]
"Read My Word,
child."

"Eh.......You mean the FIRST PAGE?
Yeah; SURE! At least
I don't have to....You know:
flip AROUND!
I HATE that!
(Grumble.)
(Mumble.)
(Frown.)
Yeah. HERE it is:

Thus the heavens
and the earth
were finished....
and on the seventh
day,
God
finished His Work....
and He rested
on the
seventh day.......
[Genesis 2:1-2]

Oh, yeah. I forgot!
(Big smile!)
So......WHICH day did Ya
make the DINOSAURS?"

[PATIENT SMILE.]
"Which day, My beloved?"

(Squint.)
(Flip page back.)
(Read.)
"Eh.......it looks like the FOURTH
DAY!
(Look up at ceiling.)
Was THAT IT?
Am I RIGHT?"

[SMILE!]

"Was THAT it, LORD?
Was it the FOURTH DAY?
YOU CAN TELL ME!
I WON'T TELL ANYBODY!"

[SOFT VOICE.]
"Why are you shouting,
little one?"

"SO..............
(Shout!)
YOU'LL HEAR ME!"

[CHUCKLE.]
"I can hear you just fine,
precious."

"Uh UH!
UH UH!
MOST 'A THE TIME,
YA DON'T hear me!
AT ALL!
Not one BIT!
In FACT!
I think Ya got EAR PLUGS IN!
MOST 'a the TIME!"

[CHUCKLE!]
[SMILE.]

"SO?
SO?
What ABOUT it?
(Impatient frown!)
WHAT ABOUT IT?"

[LONG PAUSE.]
"What about what,
child."

(Really impatient grimmace!)
"About the 65 million......YEARS!"

[AGGRAVATING SILENCE.]

"WELL?"

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

"WELL?
What happened sixty-five
MILLION YEARS ago?
Huh, LORD?
HUH?"

[LONG PAUSE.]
[IRONIC SMILE.]
"Thoughts of you,
My beloved.
[SHAKE HEAD.]
[SIGH.]
"Thoughts of you."
**************************
And.......
there was morning,
a fourth day.
And God said,
Let the waters bring forth
swarms of living
creatures,
and let birds
fly
above the earth..........
So God created
the great
sea monsters
and
every living creature
that moves..........
[Genesis 1:19-21]
