A minister spotted a woman coming up the front walk. Looking more closely, he saw it was his leading trouble-maker, Mrs. Queen.
Hiding in his study he let his wife handle the caller. An hour later he opened, his study door and hearing nothing, called down to his wife, “Has that terrible gossip gone?”
The visitor was still there. There was a moment of painful silence, and then the minister’s wife called up, “Yes, she went sometime ago, but Mrs. Queen is here now!”
