The Lost Coin

Jesus: Or suppose a woman who has ten silver coins loses one. It is vital to her because it is part of her dowry.

Esther: Now where did I last see that? I came in, took the necklace off, put it on the table. No it’s not there. Before that I was talking to the neighbours on the step – so it must be outside. No, it’s not there. Before that I was making bread, ah – I bet it’s in the bowl… No… no. Before that I was sweeping the floor – it must be in the bristles of the broom.
There it is! Oh no – that’s an old rotten olive. Ugh! Before that I was doing some washing – must be in the water jar. Yes! No! That’s a dead cockroach! Lovely!
