The Running of the Nuns...

I got into town from Chicago late last night, and was still in quite a groggy state when I headed off for work this morning.

I rounded the corner in my neighborhood to see:

Running Nuns.

I am not making this up. 2 nuns, in full habits--FULL habits, the long dresses, caps, and all--and tennis shoes, on a morning jog.

Oh, for a camera!!! Not that I could have kept up with them, to take their pictures, they seemed to have a pretty good stride. I'm still not convinced it wasn't a gag, or that someone didn't slip some nun-inducing hallucinant into my coffee this morning.

  1. You really do see some strange things. That's not who you mooned is it?

  2. Yes:

    #3: Moon a Nun.

    It was runner up only to sky-diving and swinging over the rainforest canopy.

  3. I often see nuns at the grocery store up the street. On the way into town you pass the Noviate of the Immaculate Heart, which is no longer a convent in the traditional sense, but rather a nursing home for elderly nuns. I guess the nuns I see at Bashas are the spry ones who care for the elderly ones, but they're definitely not as spry as those you saw jogging! Where do you suppose they reside?

  4. Believe me, the woman that you mooned was most certainly not a nun, nor has she seen virginity in several decades (Hallelujah!)
