Basking in the Sun
Seeing the nuns reminded me of going to Catholic Girls School for many, many years (I've been trying to recover from that for my whole life). It reminded me of the time that the nun I had in the third grade said something about having had Cheerios for breakfast that morning. I was so astonished that I cried going home after school that day. I don't know - I guess I thought nuns ate "angel food" or something. It crushed my desire to be a nun, which is something all little Catholic girls want at some point.
My friends Ron and Fred, who traveled with me on this trip, laughingly said that if I had been a nun they would have liked to see the church that would have accepted me. They think it would have had to have been the "church of what's happening now"......... They love to tease me - cause they love me. I think.
