Starbuck’s Conversation

Posted: July 9, 2008 in Uncategorized

I’m sitting in Starbucks here on Ireland Rd. and behind me are two gentlemen who are about to turn 70.  Here is the real live conversation they were having that I eavesdropped on (published without their permission 🙂 :

Gentlemen #1 speaking to Gentlemen #2:  “….he said it used to be a Church of Christ [this is what caught my attention and caused me to pay attention…or eavesdrop 🙂 ].  But they changed their name to….[insert pause as he tried to remember] Living Stones.  It used to be a Church of Christ.  That is where I used to go when I was younger.  I was curious how it changed so I mentioned I would like to go to see what it was like.  So he [member at Living Stones] said, ‘‘Ill pick you up on Sunday.’  I went and it was really good.  I even went two weeks in a row.  People were really friendly and I could tell they loved my friend and his children…I liked it.

Gentlemen #2:  That’s great.

In a moment the smile on my face will calm down.  I love eavesdropping!

    Isn’t it wonderful what you hear when you “be still and listen”

  2. Tina says:

    But Sam, you really shouldn’t eavesdrop! (glad you did this time!)

  3. Anya says:

    My sister works at that Starbucks! She wasn’t there today, though.
    Everyone I know who’s ever come to Living Stones has loved it 🙂

  4. Samson says:

    Awesome! I can also brag that I got my eavesdropping skills from him!
