Little Bird The study in our house was always locked; until today. Father didn't like us going in there because we could cause ruckus, but that doesn't matter now. Momma said that he has gone far away--far below--and he won't come back 'till Christ comes. Now the door to the study is open, but only slightly where a sneaky sliver of light peaks through the crack. I am afraid to open it because what if I went inside and father found out?

The man's hands were clammy, his handshake limp. Rumpled suit, porkpie hat, briefcase... oh Jes-- oh dear, a salesman. God's smile slipped a little but He soldiered on gamely. With luck He could shoo the poor guy away in a few minutes.
"So, what can I do for you?"
The man sat, briefcase across his knees. "Sector 2-7-0! Everyone's talking about it! What do you call it? Man and merman?"
"Man and woman, actually. And thanks. But we're pretty busy around here, and..."
"Oh! Right! No time for the wicked, eh?" The salesman winked and popped his briefcase,
