"Wait! Don't just bring that octopus into the boat."
She looked around. Who said that? There was no one else in the boat. Was it the octopus talking? She started to peer closely at it, when she heard the voice again:
"It's me... your clothing!"
"My clothing?!" said the nun.
"Yes. I am a magic talking nun's habit. I have been silent forever, but now I must speak, to tell you that before you haul that octopus onboard, you must check it for ticks!"
"Yes. Flea and tick season is upon us. That octopus could be infested!"
At that, the nun just rolled her eyes and said, "Silly habit. Ticks are for squids!"
