Miss Bea

Recommended Posts

Miss Bea was in her eighties, and much admired for her sweetness and kindness to all.

The pastor came to call on her one afternoon in the spring, and she welcomed him into her Victorian parlor.

She invited him to have a seat while she prepared a little tea.

As he sat facing her old pump organ, the young minister noticed a cut glass bowl sitting on top of it, filled with water.

In the water floated, of all things, a condom.

Imagine his shock and surprise.

Imagine his curiosity!

Surely Miss Bea had flipped or something...!

When she returned with tea and cookies, they began to chat.

The pastor tried to stifle his curiosity about the bowl of water and its strange floater, but soon it got the better of him, and he could resist no longer.

"Miss Bea," he said, "I wonder if you would tell me about this?"(Pointing to the bowl)

“Oh, yes,” she replied, "Isn't it wonderful? I was walking downtown last fall and I found this little package. The directions said to put it on the organ, keep it wet, and it would prevent disease. And you know...I didn’t have a cold all winter. God is good.”
