But,
I, brethren,
could not address
you as spiritual men,
but as men of the flesh,
as babes
in Christ.
[1 Corinthians 3:1]
*************************
"LORD?
LORD!"

"What is it,
Mein kinder."

"So, what's MINE?"

"What,
Mein kinda'lah."

"My MATURITY!
MY MATURITY!"

[SLOW NOD.]
[SMILE.]

"They TALKED about
that....in CLASS, tonight!
WELL?"

"Read My Word,
child."

"What is it:
a TEN?"

[PATIENT SIGH.]

"An EIGHT?"

[SILENCE.]

(Woeful squint at ceiling.)
"A.......SIX?"

[SILENCE.]

"Oy!"
(Munch on a pretzel.)
(Reach for a kosher pickle.)
(Thoughtful pause.)
"A 4 and a HALF?"

"Read My Word,
little one."

"Ya mean.....
it's WORSE?"

"Read My Word."

"WHAT am I:
a TWO?"

[LONG SILENCE.]

"The TERRIBLE TWOS?"

[SILENCE.]
[SMILE!]

"Oy."

[CHUCKLE.]

"What's THAT:
the STAGE where
ya've picked up some
stuff......but, you're
still QUESTIONING
EVERYTHING?"

[SMILE!]

(Sudden grimmace!)
"I don't think
I should've eaten
that second PICKLE,
Lord."

[WISE NOD.]

(Grimmace.)
(Go get some rolaids.)
"Ya know, Lord.....
(Munch.)
I don't really CARE
what STAGE,
I'm at."

[PATIENT GAZE.]

"As long
as YOU'RE
there."

[TENDER VOICE.]
"I love you,
child."

(Squirm.)
"I'm not really good,
with this mushy stuff,
Lord."
(Squirm.)
"I'm much better....
with the kvetching."

[BURST OUT LAUGHING!]
***********************
I fed you
with milk,
not solid food;
for you
were not ready
for it;
and even yet
you are not ready.
[1 Corinthians 3:2]
