A new young pastor was calling on the elderly in his congregation who could no longer go to church. He went to visit Aunt Sally, who was quite old and in a nursing home. He was somewhat nervous and kept eating peanuts from a bowl beside her bed. When he got up to leave, he noticed he had eaten all of the peanuts. “I’m so sorry. I absent-mindedly ate all your peanuts without asking if I might have some.” “Oh, that’s all right,” Aunt Sally said. “I’d already gummed all of the chocolate off of them anyhow.”
