That's odd, thought the Abbot, I'm not expecting anyone. He opened the door a little and peered out.

“Mother!” cried the Abbot. He opened the door fully and the Mother Superior from the convent swept into the room.

“You've been acting a bit strange of late. I thought I would visit and see how you are.”

“Oh, I'm alright” replied the Abbot, “But I do miss my goat.”

The Mother Superior looked at him with the sort of look that spontaneously snapped all the chalk in the primary school next door. “I see” she said carefully.“You miss your goat. Is that all?”

“Yes” said the Abbot, “we had a good relationship, man and goat.”

“Well, is there anything that I can do for you, in the absence of your goat?”

“Well, that's mighty nice of you to offer! Could you put some milk in this?” he asked, holding out his mug of black coffee. “No! No! No! Mother! Really! Please! I meant from the kitchen. There's a bottle in the fridge there.”

For some minutes after the Mother Superior had left, the Abbot sat there with a puzzled look on his face.

A 'beep' from his computer alerted him to an incoming message:

He turned around just as the Mother Superior returned with a small jug of milk.

“This should last you a while.” she said, putting it on the side table.

“In the absence of you goat, is there anything else I can do for you?”
