"I was kind'a disppointed,
Lord."

[PATIENT GAZE.]

"He* didn't have long
HAIR, in THIS one!"

[GAZE OUT AT A
FIELD OF TINY FLOWERS
WILTING IN THE TEXAS
SUN.]

"Yeah; he definitely
looked sexier, in the
OTHER one."

[PATIENT SMILE.]

"Plus, SOME of those
parts were really GORY."
(Pause to spoon some
pineapple sherbet.)
Did YOU see it,
LORD?"

[NOD.]
"I see everthing,
little one."

(Stare up at ceiling.)
"Even.......
'Mork and MINDY'**?"

[CHUCKLE.]

"SERIOUSLY......
what was that BOTTLE,
they kept tossin'
AROUND: the one
with all the little
LIGHTS, in it?"

[PATIENT SIGH.]

"And.....what did that
have to do with the POPE,
ANYWAY?"
(Clueless squint up
at the ceiling.)
"Did YOU get that
PART?"

[SMILE.]

"And, did they
REALLY expect us to
believe that gorgeous,
long-legged lady with
the model figure, and
French accent....
was an atom-splitting
PHYSICIST?"

[SIGH.]

(Chomp on a pretzel.)
"Hey.....LORD?
How come all those
guys, in the movie...
were wearing YARMULKES***?"

[CHUCKLE.]

"That's WEIRD."

[PATIENT NOD.]

"Ya know: the JEWS
invented those, FIRST,
Lord."

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

"Everybody else
is just a bunch'a
copy-CATS."

[SMILE.]

(Smile up at ceiling vent.)
"Ya know: put BLACK
robes on all those
Vatican guys, instead
of the RED, add some beards,
and make 'em ARGUE
a little bit more......
and, they could be
RABBIS!"

[GENTLE SMILE.]
"And, just what would
they be arguing about,
Mein kinder."

(Stare at ceiling.)
"YOU?"

[SOLEMN NOD.]
*********************
Every man praying
or prophesying
having his head
covered,
dishonors his head.
[1 Corinthians 11:4]

____________________________
*Tom Hanks; my favorite
movie of his, is 'The
Money Pit.'. I love the
scene, where he comes
into the kitchen, where
his girlfriend is cooking
(burning) a turkey in
their broken oven, and
says to her : "Uh.....we,
uh, have weak TREES."
**If you don't know
what this is, don't worry
about. It only makes
sense to the American-
over-50-year-olds.
***Pronounced 'ya'mah'kahs':
skull caps, or 'kippahs'.
Like everything
else about God,
the Jews invented
them, first.

I like your deconstruction of complex cultural and religious symbols to questions and answers of child like simplicity. Nevertheless, I admit to not understanding much of the conversation! Still i enjoyed the happy wonderment...
