A short conversation about miracles

"Oh my God! I...I can read braille! I've never learned how but I just touched this little tiny sign and I know it says 'Exit'!"

"That's because the little tiny sign you touched is attached to the bottom of a great, big sign that says 'Exit' in great, big, red letters. There's even another sign, one that lights up, above that. It also says 'Exit'."

"What? I didn't...oh. I didn't even notice that until now. No, I read the braille sign, with my untrained fingers. This is a miracle!"

"It's not a miracle. You're an idiot."

"Why can't you just accept the fact that you're in the presence of a very special person, someone who can perform miracles, or someone to whom miracles happen? Either way, face it, I'm miraculous!"

"Because I know you. And the only thing miraculous about you is that you don't fall down more often."

"Do you think we should call the Vatican?"

Rupe wonders if the Vatican was called. And where the rest of this story went.

Denis A. Baldwin said...

I can walk under water, turn wine into piss and can cook a leopard. Am I a miracle worker?

Why, it's Clark! said...

Rupe: No, these conversations NEVER go anywhere.

Chris & Jon: You are far too kind. "Rudisms" is yet another Excellent Name For A Band!

Denis: If it were up to me, you'd officially be a saint. Don't get excited; I have no real standards.
