Once upon a time there was a wise old Mother Superior from county Tipperary who was dying. The nuns gathered around her bed trying to make her comfortable. They gave her warm milk to drink, but she refused it.
One nun took the glass back to the kitchen.
Remembering a bottle of Irish whiskey the nuns had received as a gift the previous Christmas, she opened a poured a generous amount into the warm milk.
The nun took the glass back to Mother Superior's bedside, & held the glass to her lips. Mother drank a little, then a little more. Before they knew it, she had downed the whole glass, down to the last drop.
"Mother," the nuns asked earnestly, "please give us some wisdom before you die.
Mother Superior slowly raised her head, & with a pious look on her face, whispered, "Don't sell that cow!"
There is nothing better than a friend, unless it is a friend with chocolate." -Charles Dickens
