“Intermezzo in A Minor”

Today I read:

The man will read the “Believe It Or Not News” to his wife and boy at the table because other news gives indigestion, encourages the kind of crying that can go on forever. He will try them with this: The 900 year old heart of an Irish saint has gone missing. The parish priest is saddened. Disappointed.“Will it come back?” the child will ask, confused.
