Maybe this is how it happened.

 

 

CHARACTERS:
Gabriel: An Angel
Mary:  The Mother of Jesus

SETTING:
A ROOM IN JERUSALEM 9 MONTHS B.C.
MARY IS SEATED ON A BENCH DARNING A PIECE OF CLOTH
GABRIEL APPEARS IN A GREAT GUSH OF BACKLIGHT AND SIGNING SERAPHIM


GABRIEL
Mary!


MARY
(startled)
Oh Jesus!  You scared me.


GABRIEL
Sounds like a good name for a kid.


MARY
What kid?


GABRIEL
Exactly.


THE LIGHT GOES OUT AND MARY GOES BACK TO DARNING.


MARY
I really need to get a lock on that door.

END

I thought it was really funny.  Nothing we can use as we don't live in that era...but for me...it was a skit.

I think it would be better without the last line.
