What did you learn at Sunday School
So little Eamonn had returned from Sunday School and his mother asked what
he'd learned that day.
'Well,' he said, 'Father O'Malley told us how Moses led the Israelites out
of Egypt and into the Promised Land.'
'Indeed,' said Mother. 'And what exactly happened?'
'Well,' went on the little fellow. 'Moses got all the people together and
loaded them into buses, lorries and cars. They drove off into the desert at night
time and it wasn't till the morning that the Pharaoh found out they'd gone. When
he realised what happened he was angry and he gathered all his army together,
tanks, halftracks, jeeps and everything.
They chased after the Israelites and they caught them at the Red Sea. Moses
had built a pontoon bridge and he'd thrown it across the water and his people
were just starting to cross when the Egyptians came up firing their rockets and
anti-tank missiles and completely destroyed the Pharaoh's army. Then the people
crossed the bridge into the Promised Land.'
'Wow, what a story,' said the mother. 'Is that what Father O'Malley told you?'
'Well, no,' replied Eamon. 'Not quite. But the way Father O'Malley told the
tale you'd never believe it!'
