Thursday Thirteen


13 PHOTOS OF NUNS

These nuns have learned "The Wave" and practice it after Evening Prayers.

3

Sister Rosemary trains for beating up the MISBEHAVING boys.

When I was in high school we students would sneak out to have a smoke (we weren't allowed to smoke in uniform). These nuns hid us from view and had a couple of smokes on their own.


5

These nuns are practicing a choral presentation of "I Kissed a Girl."


6

This is the most beautiful nun I have ever seen.


7

These are Buddhist nuns


8

This was a special team-teaching effort when I was in Senior Year of high school for teaching young ladies how to apply make-up and dress for success.


9

These nuns escorted us to the bathroom when we needed to go during the school day.


10

Sister Painful Wounds found the convent was not all it was cracked up to be.


11

Sister SweetonU had a penchant for measuring things.


12

Sister SonnyJim taught Physical Education to the Sophomores.


13

Small misdemeanors such as stealing an extra chop at dinner was punished quickly and without hesitation.

A devilishly brilliant Thirteen. Thank you for that. If I had to pick a favorite, and I know, nobody said I have to, I'd pick the gun-toting bathroom escorts.

Very, very funny. I loved the "bridesmaid gowns" cartoon. Made me laugh out loud - and I'm at work!

Love your new award, happy Feet, how great...maybe I shall be that way again for you.
You know your TT scares me, because I have a fear of NUNS.
I have a TT at The Cafe & Mama Bear Reads.

Travis said...

HA! I have absolutely no experience with nuns.

Joyce said...

I take it your experiences with nuns were pretty harrowing? This is payback time. :)

Geraldine said...

LOL....good one Mary. I went to an all-girls convent school and the nuns I had there as teachers were just the best. No knuckles slapped with a ruler or floors to wash with a toothbrush as the media often likes to portray. I loved this post, great job!
