Another quick one for Mouse

Mouse’s play is this weekend. Performances are this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings at 8 PM and Sunday afternoon at 2 PM. Dungeon Theatre at Light Fine Arts Building, Academy Street at Kalamazoo College. I believe the tickets are free. The play is Sister Mary Ignatius Explains It All For You, by Christopher Durang, and Mouse is Sister Mary Ignatius. Click here to see the poster. Comment or email for more explicit directions if you are interested in driving out to kzoo. I think we’re going on Sunday.

    Nook & I are going to head over for Friday’s performance. Decided that would probably work better for us timewise after all. (I’m taking Friday off from work, dogs going to the doggie motel in the AM, dog-free weekend until Monday evening!)

    Sister Mary Walter (aka Waldo) was the nun who patrolled the first floor hallway between classes. (Royal Oak Shrine High School, 1964-65) It was her job to make sure no one was talking in more than a whisper. She also would check the legnth of our skirts. The skirt had to touch the floor when we were kneeling. We also would get in BIG trouble if we rolled our skirts at the waist to make them a little shorter. Sister Mary Walter is the nun that attacked me in the hall and then she was “speechless” when she caught me wearing suspenders to hike my skirt up to the middle of my knee or so. You also have to know that Sister was about 240 years old and 4’5″ tall (give or take an inch). She is also the nun who walked to the back of the classroom and ripped a ball point pen out of Bob Charbeneau’s hand and threw it at the blackboard at the front of the classroom. It broke all over the blackboard and splattered ink. It seems as though Bob was unconciously clicking his pen and she didn’t like it. He was so captivated by her lecture about the Macabees (Religion Class) that I really believe he didn’t know what he was doing. Rather than say anything, she just took care of the problem. The next morning, Mr. Charbeneau was in the hall yelling at Sister Mary Walter and demanding that she pay him the $5.00 that the pen cost. It is the only time that I ever saw a nun get in trouble in front of a whole audience of students. Bob did not have to leave Shrine High either and his dad collected. As for me, rules are rules, so I quit wearing the suspenders. I really didn’t get in trouble though because there wasn’t a suspender rule when I wore them.
