    Default Warm Glass of Milk

    Enjoy your day with a glass of warm milk.


    Ireland - the 99-year-old Mother Superior lay quietly. She was dying.

    The Nuns had gathered around her bed, laying garlands around her and

    trying to make her last journey comfortable. They wanted to give her warm

    milk to drink but she declined. One of the nuns took the glass back to the

    kitchen. Then, remembering a bottle of Irish Whiskey that had been 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, they lifted her head gently and held the glass

    to her lips. The very frail Nun drank a little, then a little more and before they

    knew it, she had finished the whole glass down to the last drop.

    As her eyes brightened, the nuns thought it would be a good opportunity to

    have one last talk with their spiritual leader..


    "Mother," the nuns asked earnestly, "Please give us some of your wisdom

    before you leave us".


    She raised herself up very slowly in the bed on one elbow, looked at them

    and said: "DON'T SELL THAT COW."
