Coffee Shop Conversations

Somewhere in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan..

Pharisee 1

The jerk who just came in says he was blind and now he can see.

Pharisee 2

“Nothing is that simple.”

Pharisee 1

“Ya know what they say; if it seems too good to be true, it probably isn’t.”

Pharisee 2

“The guy must have done something really bad to be blind in the first place.”

Pharisee 1

“Maybe his father was blind. They say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.”

JESUS – (Sitting at the counter)

“I healed him as my Father led me.

Pharisee 1

That was quite a lucky break for the guy, you healing him. Just who do you think you are, anyway?”

JESUS

“You’ll just have to take my word for who I am.”

Pharisee 2

Hey! Mister! Who’s responsible for healing your blindness?”

Former Blind Man

“A man called Jesus.

Pharisee 1

“So where is this guy now?”

Former Blind Man

“He’s sitting right over there at the counter.”

Pharisee 2

“Let’s just let the law handle it.

Lawman (arrives)

“Buddy, you’ve been traveling on a restricted license because of your blindness. You haven’t been wearing your seatbelt either. You’d better come clean about this cured blindness. What’s going on here?”

Former Blind Man

“All I know for sure is I was blind and now I can see.”

Pharisee 2

“Call the guy’s parents.”

Blind Man’s Father

“He’s ours alright. But he’s a big boy and he can speak for himself.”

Pharisee 1

“If that Jesus guy is a doctor, I’d call him a quack.”

Former Blind Man

“For a couple of guys with so many questions, you sure don’t have many answers.”

Pharisee 1

“Hit the road, buddy. Your kind never changes. How much do we owe ya for the coffee lady?”

Loved to write since high school..as the years pass memories and relationships are primary. (There is also room for an opinion or two.) Feeling good at the age of eighty-five, I'm enjoying life and a hobby of photography. We've lived on this small farm for sixty-one years. In the course of time we welcomed three sons, two grandkids, and 3 greats. We owned and operated an Ace Hardware and a Hallmark Shop and managed to raise sheep for ten years. My husband and I shared sixty-two years of marriage before his passing in 2017. A son has also passed on to the next life, Memories really are "Made From This". Welcome to my world!
