Squint – (#SmallTales)

“So,” he said, squinting again as he peered closer. “These Ten Commandments.”

“Yes?” said Moses, shifting his weight uneasily from one foot to the other. “What about them?”

“Given to you by God, were they, up there on the mountain?”

“Yes, Aaron,” said Moses. “Given to me by God.”

“His chiselling’s a little sloppy, isn’t it? Especially down here around Respecting thy Fat Mother”

“Father and Mother,” corrected Moses

“It definitely says Fat,” said Aaron, judiciously. “And it’s high time the Almighty revisited His apostrophes!” 

Moses, fidgeting with the stone tablets, suddenly wished he’d included something nasty about older brothers.
