Christmas Play

As we were going through a box with Christmas stuff last night, I found this story that I wrote when I was 6. My mom’s note says that it’s a play. Whatever it is, it was hilarious. It’s written in big first grader handwriting with a black crayon on many pieces of scratch paper taped end to end to form a scroll. Not sure if it's quite as funny typed out, but here it is, unedited:

First, Mary was at the well with some other ladies. They said…

Can you wait entel the Savyior comes? and saves us!

Then an angel uperd and said BE NOT AFRADE! You will be the mother of the savior.

Mary said but there are a lot of people that want to be the mother.

But God chose you Go tell Joseph

Joseph! Joseph! An angel aperd to me and said I’d have a baby but I have to go to Bethlehem

Wel, I can come with you.

Okay.

Then Mary and Joseph set off for Bethlehem. They stopt at an inn.

The inn keeper said there aren’t any rooms in the hool town

But she’s having a baby.

Well you can stay in the stable. But it’s not much

Okay Mary let’s go.

He’s right it’s not much.

Meen wile the angel Gabriel told sheperds about the Lord

At the stabel Lord Jesus was born

wighs men came to worship him

This is priceless. I chuckled throughout the whole thing. But what made me lose it was the last line... "wighs" men. At first I thought "Wigs? What? I don't get it..." And then it dawned on me. I have tears... so funny. Thank you!
