Judith in the headlight

22 Mar

Giovanni Battista Spinelli, “Judith with the Head of Holofernes,” Oil on canvas, 80 x 68 cm, Musee de Beaux Arts, Nantes, France

Judith:  Whoa, dude. that light is way too bright and aimed right in my face.   And dang, you don’t have to shout.   Didn’t you hear about the party last night?

It was VERY private.   And I fear the General is a little hung over.  In fact, he has a splitting headache.  He said he feels like it is about to blow off his head.  You could say he is not completely himself.

So, why don’t you run along and tell the other boys he will be there  …  as soon as he can pull himself together  …  which could take quite awhile.

I wouldn’t want to tell you a lie.
