A Shepherd Tells His Mother 

Luke:    Ma, Ma! You’re not going to believe this! 
Luke’s mother was a wise old bird. Not easily ruffled, or indeed, hoodwinked.

Mother:    Luke, do you know what time it is?
Luke:        Ma, come here. Come here. Look, look! 


Mother:   Where are you? 
Luke:       Out here, on the step. Look at that sky! Look at that sky! 
Mother:    Very nice, now do you want a snack before you turn in? 
Luke:        Mum! The sky! 
Mother:    We’re all out of figs but I could do you your favourite – fish and grapes. 
Luke:    That star, Ma. Look - I’ve seen him. 
Mother:    Him? Him? 
Luke:    The Messiah! That’s his star; he’s in a stable. 
Mother:    The Messiah, in a stable? Come on, Luke, you’ve had a hard day... 
Luke:    He’s a beautiful baby boy, Mum. Scrunched blue eyes and no teeth! 
Mother:   Sounds like your father.
