MODERN DAY CHRISTMAS
Give us this day, our daily bread.
In today's episode we find our two fellows celebrating Christmas at home. Listen:
"Thank you Mr Peacock, and I might reciprocate in kind. Such a special day is today. A day for sharing the benefit of one's life experience with those not so blessed. Ah yes, such a day."
"Indeed Mr Popinjay. And who would have more life experiences to share with others than someone of our ilk. We have been mightily blessed in the area of impirocisity if in none other. Wouldn't you agree Mr Popinjay?"
"Indubitably Mr Peacock. And what, may I ask, is the meaning of the word you used so eloquently?"
"I haven't the faintest idea Mr Popinjay. But doesn't it sound nice, and appropriate for the occasion?"
"It does indeed Mr Peacock. It does indeed. And what is in the meaning of a word anyway, as long as we have communication."
"Indeed Mr Popinjay. And speaking of communication, my duodenal region is telling me that it's time to partake of the epicurean delights as set forth on a delightsome table just for our culinary delight."
"Indeed Mr Peacock. And on that note I would like to interject a thought I have been entertaining for the past moment or so. It occurs to me that we, albeit understandably, have more than an adequate supply of nourishment. It has passed my mind that we might consider the sharing of our abundance with someone not as fortunate as we. Do you entertain any thoughts on my suggestion?"
"The thought has certainly crossed my mind Mr Popinjay. However I did not cultivate the thought for long because I can not imagine the likelihood of finding anyone worthy of our company. Do you not believe that being in the company of someone not of our ilk would detract from our own epicurean pleasure?"
"I have no doubt but such would be the outcome of such an endeavor Mr Peacock. But then, isn't the debasement of oneself and the sacrifice of one's pleasure part of the reason for such an endeavor?"
"An entirely adequate explanation Mr Popinjay. And with that, I will withdraw my objection. Shall we to the street and see if we might find such a one in need of our gracious hospitality?"
"Indeed Mr Peacock. To the streets we saunter."
"Indeed Mr Peacock. But if you will direct your attention to your right you will yet see a possibility of sharing our blessings. I spy a man, albeit a slovenly person by any catagorization, but a man nonetheless. What say we lower our standards to the floor and inquire as to his situation for the day? Perhaps we will find ourself fortunate and he will be indisposed and we will have done our duty yet not have had to sacrifice."
"I am at your disposal Mr Popinjay. You may take the lead."
"Well now, that's mighty thoughty of you I must say. Ain't many folks so willin' to share, especial' with one the likes of me. But I's afeared I's got ta' turn you boys down. I regrets to tell you that I has a pre-engagement with a mighty good friend a' mine, and I does not want ta' cause him no delays in our regular get-to-gethers. Ain't that so?"
"I'm sorry my good man. I'm afraid I can't answer that question. You see...."
"No fella, I ain't talkin' to you. I's talkin' to me friend here. An' he's agreed with me. As f'r food, I done found a disposed of ham sandwich someone done left on a park bench, so I's well provided for. Special day you know. Day my Lord done went and be borned."
"Yes, we know. But who may I ask is the one you were directing your inquiry to if not to me or Mr Popinjay?"
"Why, to the one who this here day is all 'bout a' course. I talks with Him regular like. That's the way of it you know? So, gots ta' go now folks. Sorrowful ta' let ya' down, but that's the way of it. You has yourself a mighty fine day, eat well, an' don't f'rget to remember what this here day is all about, an' who done gived you that fine table a' food you is about to partake of, hear?"
37Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38This is the first and great commandment. 39And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. (Mat 22:)
32But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of. 33Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat? 34Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work. (John 4:)
