Quick one for Mouse

If you have nun stories, Mouse is looking for them. So head on over there if you are (or were) Catholic or just used to sneak into the neighborhood Catholic church with your (Catholic) friend, looking for stray holy cards.

    Harry has an excellent nun story from his youth – getting smacked upside the head by a nun. is that the kind of story you’re looking for?
    Pooh – seems that Mark was scarred for life from his early school days? there must be a few stores there.

    Bay Medical Center was the result of the merger of 2 hospitals: General Hospital and Mercy Hospital. As you may surmise, Mercy was run by an order of Catholic Nuns.

    The most-memorable Nun Story I have follows:

    Dad tended to use the stairways instead of the elevators to get from floor to floor at Mercy. One day, just for the hell of it, as he’s tromping down the steps in what he thought was a deserted stairway, he was popping a fart with each step down…. only to find Sister Patrice on her way UP from the bottom.

    Being a nun AND the hospital administrator, Sister Patrice never acknowledged whether she heard a thing….

    I suspect that’s the only time in my Dad’s life he admitted being embarrassed.

    As a side note, Dad was raised Quaker but developed a deep distaste for organized religion. However, while he disdained religion, he had no issues with the nuns with whom he worked. As gruff and curmudgeonly as he was, he DID have a great deal of respect for the people who worked with him. Regardless of race, religion, color, or creed. As long as they didn’t try to recruit or convert him, that is 😉
