Transcript the rules you know." "Oh please Angel Elizabeth," begged Radclyffe. "Ok. But just a little tiny bit. Athlete dust is getting to be more and more in demand lately." Happily Amelia and Radclyffe ran off to get the dust. "These young women nowadays, I just don't know what this heaven's coming to," said the Angel Joan D'Arc. "But come on, let's go over to my room. I've got some swords to polish and we can watch the Ducks from there." Just what I've been wanting" to do all day, I thought. Radclyffe joined us at Saint Joan D'Arc's and we turned on the scanner. The Ducks were beginning a second game and for a few innings it looked like a repeat of the previous game. But, just when things were looking bad for them, the figure of Angel Amelia appeared over the ball field. "Oh, there she is," shouted Radclyffe. "But what's that she's carrying? It looks like a big paper bag/" "Oh no, I hope'it's not athlete dust. A bag full that size would be eno enough to make every one of them Olympic Champions in every sport for 801 years." It wasn't athlete dust though, because we soon saw Amelia flying over the Duck bench, dropping little bits of athlete dust from a small pouch she had in her pocket. Her job done, she disappeared from the viewing screen. Then the Ducks got up to bat and it was a glorious sight to behold. They hit everywhere and their fielding was flawless. The transformation was almost unbelievable even though we had expected it. As we watched the game Amelia flew back into the room, triumphantly carrying a huge paper bag. "Guess what I've got? BEER! I stopped ata U-Rob-Em and picked up a case. Perfect for watching a ball game." "But Amelia," wailed Angel Saint Joan D'Arc. "You know you're not supposed to bring anything into heaven from earth, especially not beer!" "Heck, you only go around once in heaven, Antjel Joan. Grab a little qusto, live a little. Pretty catchy huh?" "What? What are you saying? I don't know what you're-talking about!" "It doesn't matter," I told Saint Joan. "Come on, let's watch the Ducks." The Ducks easily won that game and in their next game they were just as impressive, thoroughly trouncing their opponents. The room rang with our cheers: "Way to go Ducks, way to throw that ball , Radical." "Hit em again, harder, harder." "Wrong game. Saint Joan."1 "Whoops, ok, sock it to em." And in such a vain we spent a happy afternoon, drinking beer, polishing swords (for Saint Joan has a largo supply in case God ever sends her down to earth again) and cheering for the Ducks who had already cinched third place and seemed to be well on their way to winning the tournament. They had only two more games to win when suddenly the voice of GOD boomed into the room! "Just what in heaven's name is going on in here? Angel Saint Joan D'Arc, T've never seen you so disarrayed." (Saint Joan had appropriated Amelia"s helmet and v/as wearing it rakishly tilted over one eye.) "Radclyffe and Amelia, you seem to be drunk! And you Elizabeth Cady Stanton, I'm ashamed of you. Have you already forgotten the WCTU? Come to my office at once! And bring that beer with you- if there's any left that is!" It took us quite a while to explain to God exactly what had happened, what with Amelia's six return trips to earth for beer and all. (It turns out that God has a hollow len.) And wc lost touch with the ducks while all of this was going on. It was Saint Joan who reminded us of them. "Schurn on the s-s-scanner, I v/hant to shee whasts happen to my Ducks.1 "Oh my gosh, we've forgotten all about them!" Radclyffe rushed to the scanner but when we turned it on the Ducks were nowhere to be seen. 10
