The Minister's Tale|
A minister was asked
to dinner by one of his church members. He knew she was a bad housekeeper but agreed. When
he sat down at the table, he noticed that the dishes were the dirtiest that he had ever
seen in his life. Were these dishes ever washed? he asked his hostess, running
his fingers over the grit and grime. She replied, Theyre as clean as soap and
water could get them.
He felt a bit uncomfortable, but blessed the food anyway and started eating. It was really
delicious and he said so, despite the dirty dishes. When dinner was over, the hostess took
the dishes outside and yelled, Here Soap! Here Water!
