The convent had been presented with a new car, a red Mini Metro, the pride of its breed. Sister Lourdes, the only qualified driver, became the chauffeur for all and sundry. Every Saturday she would drive Reverend Mother into town for all the shopping. All went well until a bank holiday weekend when the town was so packed with people and cars that it became there was no earthly place to park. “Don’t worry, Reverend Mother,” said Sister Lourdes. “you go into the supermarket and I’ll drive around the block until you come out.”

Off sped the car, and the Reverend Mother bustled around the store shopping quickly, the rushing back to the curbside. There she stood for five minutes, ten, twenty. No sign of Sister Lourdes. Where could she be? Eventually the Reverend Mother approached a patrolling policeman. “Excuse me, Officer,” she said. “have you seen a nun in a red Mini?”

“No,” replied the officer, “but these days nothing would surprise me.”
