“Well, child, you have completed your first year of your vow.  What have you to say for yourself?”

Regina grumbled “Bed hard”.

Mother Superior replied “I understand our beds can be a bit firm, but this is not a luxury hotel.  I will see if Sister Abigail can find you a softer bed.  Now go back to your chamber my dear, and continue with your good work.”

The following year, Mother Superior called Regina into her office for her two word evaluation.
