Spoiler warning! The speaker is a “maiden” of forty who intends to stay that way. As she is running the tombola at the church bazaar, she feels something crawling up her thigh. She thinks it is a mouse and nearly screams. She makes a quick grab to catch it and discovers instead that it’s a hand. “Great Scott! It was the vicar’s!”
