A guy in the checkout line tried to heal me today

Yep. Thank goodness stuff like this doesn't happen
very often... I'm in the checkout line at the store
and the guy behind me slaps his hand down on top
of my head and yells, "HEAL!". He waited a
moment and then shrugged and said, "Never know,
might work sometime." Dead silence. The mouths
of the checkout lady and the other people in line
fell to the floor.

Gosh darnit. For a minute there I thought I'd have
no use for my iBOT anymore.

When my daughter and I got in the car, she asked
me what that was all about. I told her and she
said, "Oh, I thought he was talking to you like
you were a dog and he wanted you to slow down and
'heel'".

I remember the first time I was exposed to this
sort of thing. I must have been about her age
and I was watching TV. An evangelist touched
the forehead of a woman sitting in a wheelchair
and said, "Heal". She stood up, walked around,
and started crying tears of joy. I was
flabbergasted. 'Twas one of the first times
I witnessed craziness.

It's a funny world we live in.

Let me be the first. Several years back my brother and I were in an ice cream shop when a man and his wife asked me if they could pray over me. I said "Sure" and kept eating my ice cream. They told me that if I believed strongly enough when I woke up the next morning I'd be able to walk. Oh, well, I guess the next miracle I'll see is my own iBot.

Obviously you didn't believe strongly enough. :D

Always their built-in excuse, but look at it another way: Perhaps I believed strongly enough that it wouldn't work. :D :D

When the man put his hand on my head and yelled "HEAL!", I should have pretended like I going to try to stand up, but then thrown myself on the floor. lol!
