Lillie McFerrin Writes
This week's topic is Wisdom,
something we could all use more of.
“Billy – come on – we’ve got to get to the doctor’s; I don’t
care if Steve Jobs did ask you for that new app of yours.”
Surrounded by monitors, keyboards and assorted electronics,
Billy muttered to himself, “Tim Cook, Ma, Tim Cook – Steve Jobs is dead and I
will be too if they don’t get this by tomorrow.”
Twenty minutes later, he was in the big padded chair with a
mouthful of gauze and a masked man approaching him, a gleaming instrument in
his gloved hand.
“We’ll have those wisdom teeth out in no time, Billy.”
That afternoon Billy sat and sipped ginger ale carefully,
swished it over the empty spaces in the back of his mouth and stared at
the now-unfamiliar figures on the monitor before him.
