"It's already getting
HOT, here....
in San ANTONIO,
Lord!"

[NOD.]

"But.....I wouldn't wanna
be, anywhere else!"

"I know,
child."

"Yeah;
thank You,
for bringing me here,
Lord."
(Grimmace.)
"Although.....it was
on a kind'a tortuous
ROUTE."

"I understand,
My child."

"Yeah......we studied
another part of 'Romans',
tonight, Lord."

[SMILE!]

(Grimmace, again;
this time in a less
serious way.)
"My OPINION
of it.....hasn't CHANGED,
very much."

[SMILE!]

"It's.....just so DRY."
(Stick tongue out,
in a grimmace.)
"And.....IMPERSONAL."

[CHUCKLE.]

"ECH*."

[PATIENT PAUSE.]
"But, It is
very personal,
child."

"REALLY?"
(Open Bible.)
(Slap pages around,
impatiently.)
(Flip to 'Romans'.)
(Squint.)
"WHERE?"

"Look."

(Squint.)
"Like this, Lord.
It's so.....DRY:

'By your hard
and impenitent
heart
you are storing
up wrath
for yourself
on the day
of wrath
when God's
righteous
judgment
will be revealed.'
[Romans 2:5]

SEE?"

"Tell Me,
child."

"Eh....."
(Read.)
(Sip some Walmart rootbeer.)
(Eat some Walmart sherbet.)
"I dunno."

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

"WHAT?
MY heart isn't HARD!
HEY!
Just ask ANYBODY...!"

[PATIENT SIGH.]
"We are not talking
about feeding stray animals,
here,
My beloved."

"Who is this about...
YOU?"
(Squint.)
(Pout.)
"HEY!
THAT'S not FAIR!
I TRY!"

[PATIENT NOD.]
[SIGH.]
"Go on."

(Squint down at page.)
(Adjust reading glasses,
over regular glasses**.)
(Squint.)
"So.....I'M storing up,
WRATH?"
(Clueless squint.)
"I don't UNDERSTAND?"

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

(Impatient scrowl!)
(Pet a cat.)
(Hug cat on lap.)
"Well.....THAT'S what
it SAYS!
I TOLD Ya,
You shouldn't have had
PAUL, write this STUFF!
He's a bad WRITER!"

[PATIENT GAZE.]
[PATIENT SIGH.]
[LOOK OFF TOWARD
THE MOON.]

"What SORT'A
WRATH?"

"Mine."

"HEY!
I'm JEWISH!
Didn't we already
GO THROUGH....
all this STUFF.....?"

[GENTLE CHUCKLE.]

".....back,
in the OTHER
TESTAMENT?"

[FIRM NOD.]

"So.......HOW
much WRATH,
do You have
STORED UP,
ANYWAY?"

[LONG PAUSE.]
"Lots."
***********************
For
He will render
to every man
according to
his works;
to those who by
patience
in well-doing
seek for glory.....
He will give
eternal life;
but for those
who .....do not
obey the truth.....
there will be
wrath
and fury.
[Romans 2:6-8]

__________________________
*Besides feeding cats,
the author's 2nd favorite
pastime is kvetching.
**Author finally ordered
some 'prescription' reading
glasses. They're a lot
cheaper, and less complicated,
than those horrible bifocals.
