nun sighting - with backup!

i saw a nun on the subway today and i was with a friend (who says the only time she ever sees nuns is when she's with me). i told my friend that i think it's good to see some of these nuns with someone else beside me so it's not like snuffleuphagus (i.e. all in my head for those who did not grow up with snuffy being a character that only big bird could see on sesame street. they kept him a b.b. only friend during the early 70's and then made it so everyone could see him b/c research tests or some shit showed that kids were going slightly wonky over the fact that only big bird could see snuffleuphagus who wasn't invisible or imaginary, he would simply walk off just before maria or bob or mr. hooper or someone would come by).

When I lived in Memphis, I used to see them everywhere...even in the grocery store.
I also used to see the Menonnite ordered women out and about, even in the mall!
But, since I've moved here to Louisiana (Catholic Central!), I've yet to see one. I even attend a Catholic College here and still, um no.
So strange...

NYC has a wonderful group of nuns called the Sisters of Life. Their main house is in the Bronx. You should go see them :-)

**btw, I ran across your blog from a comment on Sister Mary Martha's. There are several nun-blogs around...you just have to know where they are :-)
