Listening in on conversations

Four elderly men at a coffee shop on a Sunday morning:

“Are you a man of faith? ”  Reply: “Yes.”

“Are you a believer or a man of faith, because there is a difference you know?”

“I am a man of faith.”

Later:  ” His wife was a bit underhanded, she would go shopping when her husband was away.”

A little girl waiting in a doctor’s office.

I guess I will go get that phone book to look at.  She looks at me and says,” It’s something to read.”  I nod and say. “Lots of words in there.”  She smiles and saunters off.
