              (We see the woman comes onstage carrying a lot of things from what looks like a few thousand years ago.  She is sweating, puts all the items down.)

How did they do it?

I mean, without cars and diapers God, paper towels!  They left Egypt as slaves and they only carried what they could carry in their hands, or on a cart.

               (She looks at the items, shakes her head)

I am moving five miles away, and I have a team of three guys I'm paying to do the heavy stuff, plus friends and family, and I am exhausted!  Plus, I know where I'm going!  When those people left Egypt, they had no idea!  No forwarding address!

(Amazed)  And all because they wanted to be free.....

              (She picks up one of the bags, examines the contents.)

And me, I complain because I have too much junk.......

               (She looks up)

God forgive me!

               (Reaches into another bag, removes a candy bar, starts to unwrap it.)

I promise I will try to do better....

                (She turns to leave, stops, looks back)

But I guess for now, I get to go....into the dessert.....

                 (She takes a big bite of the candy bar and she exits- wishing all a wonderful Passover!)
