Questions I’ve Been Waiting to Ask
by Eddie Mayrose
Here we are, two days before the end of the world. According to the Mayans, those fun-loving Guatemalans whose civilization, some time around 900 A.D., simply vanished, December 21, 2012 will bring the curtain down on mankind’s Broadway run.

Therefore, I’ve abandoned my plans for, what now seems, unnecessary Christmas shopping and begun to get things in order. I don’t know if I’ll need a bag, but I’ve packed one, anyway. And, yes, I’ve included some warm weather apparel because, well, I might need it. Yet, as the date approaches, I find myself excited by the prospect of, finally, having some questions answered by the Big Guy. You know, those things in a lifetime that, no matter how much time passes, always make you wonder. Having no idea how much time I’ll have alone with Him, I decided it would be prudent to knock my list down to ten, so as to focus on the really, really important stuff. Who knows? Maybe He watches Letterman, too.
So, submitted for your approval and as the last column with which I’ll bore you, (you hope), here are the Top Ten questions I’d like to ask God.
