The Giant Wisemen

When we last left the Wisemen, they were chatting with St. Nick.
Today we find them visiting some very special Wisemen!


Wiseman #1:  Hello Very Tall Holy Ones!
Tall Wiseman #2:  I say, did either of you hear something?
Tall Wiseman #3:  It sounded like a whisper from afar.
Wiseman #1:  HELLO OH LOFTY ONES!  CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?
Tall Wiseman #1:  Why yes, I do hear something from below but I can't make it out!
Wiseman #2:  O YE OF CONSIDERABLE HEIGHT!  WE HAVE COME TO SEEK YOUR WISDOM.  CAN YOU LOOK DOWN UPON YOUR HUMBLE SERVANTS?
Tall Wiseman #1:  Ah, yes we can hear you now...but due to our immovable eyes, we cannot look down upon you. We can only look straight ahead.
Wiseman #3:  Wow!  And we thought having immovable arms was bad! 
Tall Wiseman #2:  What is it you wish to ask us?
Wiseman #1:  We have received a decree we would like to show you.
Tall Wisemen #3:  I'm terribly sorry but unless you can bring it up to our eye level we cannot read it.
Wiseman #1:  O Ye of Long Leggedness, our arms do not move from our sides....
Tall Wisemen #3:  Then we shall not be able to help you little ones.  We suggest you find wisemen more your size.  Try the next table over.
Wiseman #2:  Will they have our answers Your Mighty Giantness?
Tall Wiseman #1:  The great Rainer Maria Rilke once said, "Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves."

Will our wisemen ever find the answers they seek?  Tune in tomorrow for another exciting installment.
