i haven't had a nun sighting in a while but i also haven't been out in a while. i had bunion surgery - while i have health insurance and summers off i thought it would be a good idea. i spent all of july in my apt. with my foot propped up. blah. i'm just getting out and about these last couple of weeks.
i started going to school this week to set up my classroom. i saw a nun on the subway platform. she was asian, wearing a gray habit with a white veil. she was alone. it reminded me of the days when nuns used to go about in pairs. for safety? to keep them from temptation? well, whatever the reason, it seems to be impractical now. they go solo.
