December drabbles - 19

“Take your places.”

The children formed into lines, smallest angels in front and the tallest one at back. Teachers straightened haloes, untangled wings, and whispered words of wise encouragement: “Remember to sing. Remember; walk slowly now.”

Two heavenly lines snaked down the aisle, dissolving to pattering feet that ran while voices brightly sang.

“Careful.” They scrambled on pulpit steps, shuffling front to back, till the tallest angel was ready to speak.

The audience waited with bated breath. The seraph raised her eyes and opened her mouth, then loudly pronounced:

“Please Miss, one of the angels just peed in the pulpit!”
