When he reached an area about a foot and a half in front of Noah, he stopped abruptly. Without taking his eyes off him,repparttar stranger slowly opened his mouth and began to speak.

"You, Noah Paul King, have been brought torepparttar 132563 highest court inrepparttar 132564 universe, at my request, to tell your truth, and nothing but your truth, so help your God."

His hollow, gruff voice hammered likerepparttar 132565 final nail driven into a coffin.

He paused, and his smile transformed into a devious grin, revealing a distinct set of pearly white teeth. Noah stared in complete bewilderment.

After a moment of desperate search, Noah seized his voice.

"Ah, okay."

Without warning,repparttar 132566 man erupted in a fit of laughter.

"Okay? Is that all you have to say?"

Noah wiped his sweaty forehead with his shirtsleeve. The stranger grinned, enjoying his anxiety.

"Well, I'm puzzled," Noah replied.

"I bet you are," he laughed.

"I have no idea where I am, and what I am being charged with, and..."

"Wait,"repparttar 132567 stranger interrupted, "itsrepparttar 132568 Your God thing, isnt it?"


This has got to be some sort of hallucination, Noah thought.

"I can eliminate your confusion simply," he said. "First of all, you are not on trial. You are here as a witness forrepparttar 132569 Defense. Secondly, it is I,repparttar 132570 Prosecutor, assigned torepparttar 132571 trial. And thirdly, this isrepparttar 132572 best part..."

By now,repparttar 132573 man was snickering devilishly.

"You knowrepparttar 132574 term God, that is used to identifyrepparttar 132575 Creator?" Noah was not sure if he was asking him a question or making a statement. Feelingrepparttar 132576 dampness behind his neck grow cold, he answered with a blunt, "Yes."

"Well,"repparttar 132577 man said, "I am pleased to inform you that this higher being does in fact exist. You are here not only as a witness, but also as evidence of His creation. You have been assigned withrepparttar 132578 delightful task of defending Him."

Staring intently into his eyes, Noah felt as though he was just caught with his pants down.

After a moment of gathering his thoughts, Noah was overcome withrepparttar 132579 realization that everything he believed in for such a long time was instantly annihilated - road kill.

With allrepparttar 132580 vast knowledge he had acquired overrepparttar 132581 years, only one futile thought emerged: Oops

Shoes Gone Astray

Written by David Leonhardt

Continued from page 1

90 seconds later,repparttar cold sweat had miraculously been replaced with a single affirmation: "I will improvise"

The next morning, I began my speech: "You might be wondering why I am wearing running shoes today. Well, it's about this petition here. When I'm done speaking, I'll be running door to door and I want every one of you to come running with me, too."

It was notrepparttar 132562 speech I had come to deliver, but it worked just as well. Better, in fact. My little "goof-up" became a clever demonstration of action speaking louder than words.

Shoe lesson number two. When you forget your shoes, improvise.

My brother was getting married. We had just witnessedrepparttar 132563 signing ofrepparttar 132564 papers at their house, and they were rushing over to another place forrepparttar 132565 the ceremony. Don't ask!

As we locked up their house, my wife's sandal broke. She tried walking in it, but to no avail. So off torepparttar 132566 nearest shoe store we flew figuratively, that is. This is not another story about losing shoes hundreds or thousands of feet above a desert or a traffic jam.

We knew they would wait for us before startingrepparttar 132567 ceremony. What we did not know is how long they would wait.

That day, my wife performed a miracle that no other woman has done before or since. She went intorepparttar 132568 store and came out just five minutes later withrepparttar 132569 perfect pair of sandals smashing to smithereensrepparttar 132570 old woman-shopping-for-shoes Olympic record!

Shoe lesson number three. If you break your shoes, improvise.

Perhapsrepparttar 132571 most important lesson here is that, contrary to popular belief,repparttar 132572 shoe does not makerepparttar 132573 man (or woman). Butrepparttar 132574 lack of shoes sure can build character.

And it gives us a great opportunity to improvise.
