Judith from Southern Bethulia

29 Nov

Unknown, "L'entrevue de Judith et Holopherne," Musée des Beaux-Arts de Tours, France

Judith:  Pardon me for interrupting, but is this the Seleucid camp?

Holofernes:  No, they are the next camp over.  This is the Assyrian camp.

Judith:   The Assyrian camp?  Fiddle-dee-dee.   How confusing for a little peabrain like me.  I thought the Seleucid men were tall, dark and handsome but ya’ll are even taller and darker and handsomer.

Holofernes:  Perhaps you would prefer to visit this camp instead.

Judith:   Well, I do have a bag of Hershey bars and marshmallows I had promised to the Seleucids.

Holofernes:   Nonsense.  We have plenty of graham crackers and they don’t deserve the pleasure of your company.

Judith:   Hmmm.  I suppose.  A campfire with y’all could be more fun.  And then I can visit the Seleucids tomorrow.  After all, tomorrow is another day.   Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.
