A Nun’s Parting Thought

98 year old Mother Superior from Ireland was dying.
 The nuns gathered around her bed trying to make her
 last journey comfortable.

 They tried giving her some warm milk to drink but
 she refused it.

 One of the nuns took the glass back to the kitchen
 and remembering a bottle of Irish whiskey received
 as a gift the previous Christmas, she opened it and
poured a generous amount into the warm milk.

 Back at Mother Superior’s bed, she held the glass to
 her lips and tried again. This time the Mother drank a little, then a little more
 and before they knew it, she had drunk the whole
 glass down to the last drop.
“Mother,” the nuns asked with earnest,
 “please give us some wisdom before you die.”

 She raised herself up in bed and said,
 “Don’t sell that cow.”
