A preacher visits an elderly woman from his congregation. As he sits on the couch he notices a large bowl of peanuts on the coffee table.
Mind if I have a few he asks. No, not at all the woman replied.
They chat for an hour and as the preacher stands to leave, he realizes that instead of eating just a few peanuts, he emptied most of the bowl.
I’m terribly sorry for eating all your peanuts, I really just meant to eat a few.
Oh that’s all right the woman says. Ever since I lost my teeth all I can do is suck the chocolate off them.
