Aw…Nuts!

June 2, 2011 | by Aish.com

Rabbi Epstein is known for practicing the mitzvah of bikur cholim – visiting the sick. One day, Rabbi Epstein is visiting Mrs. Hyman who was battling a nasty flu. As he sits on the couch he notices a large bowl of peanuts on the coffee table. "Mind if I have a few?" he asks

"No, not at all!" Mrs. Hyman replies.

They chat for an hour and as Rabbi Epstein stands to leave, he realizes that instead of eating just a few peanuts, he emptied most of the bowl. "I'm terribly sorry for eating all your peanuts, I really just meant to eat a few."

"Oh, that's all right," Mrs. Hyman says. "Ever since I lost my teeth all I can do is suck the chocolate off them."
