The Meenister’s Log
A pre-funeral pastoral visit: the widow, “I can’t stop crying – I’m in floods of tears all the time”.
Student: “I see that you’re on a lot of medication, by the looks of what’s on the table by your chair.”
“Aye, I am” says she.
“Well, if you’re greetin’ so much, you’ll not be needing to take the diuretics so often, and that means fewer visits to the loo”
Another occasion – Student: “It was Oscar Wilde who said ‘either that wallpaper goes or I do’ ….. but I have to say Mrs X that you have fine taste in decoration”
