There was this Father from the town's Catholic Church who would visit the area's nursing homes.
One day upon entering his last nursing home he was met by the head nurse. She said "Mrs. Smith has been waiting for you all day, and she wanted to make sure you didn't forget her."
The Father apologized for being so late and went on into Mrs. Smith's room. He sat next to her and started talking and said a little prayer for her. Then Mrs. Smith started to talk about her day. While he was listening, he noticed a small bowl of peanuts next to her.
The father Interupted, and asked if he could have a few of the peanuts.
She of course said yes, and continued on and on, talking about her day.
The Father interrupted her again and said "Mrs. Smith I'm sorry, I've eaten almost all your peanuts."
Mrs. Smith looked at him and said, "Don't worry about it at all, I can't eat peanuts, I just like to eat the chocolate off of them."
