Conversations in the Convent

from the divine and the sublime to the very, very funny (as overheard by the mouse in the corner)

Sorry for intruding — June 21, 2018

Sorry for intruding

I answer the phone.

Sr. Mary Z.: “Is Sr. X there?”

Me: “No, I’m home by myself.”

Sr. Mary Z.: “Oh, sorry for intruding.  I love it when I’m all alone at home. Enjoy yourself!”

Conversation in the kitchen last night:

Sister A: “So there’s news about loads of people getting sick from eating Romaine.”

Sister B: “What?  Why did you let me eat that for lunch?”

Sister A: “I didn’t know about this at that time.”

Sister B: “Oh, wait!  What I ate was Ramen, not Romaine.”

Preemie? — December 7, 2017

Preemie?

Talking to Sr. Mary Z. this morning about our Jan-June calendar.  We had to do a bit of research to see where the Feast of the Annunciation was going to land–because of March 25 being Palm Sunday next year.  It has landed on April 9, 2018.  Sr. Mary responds: “That’s almost late enough to make it a premature birth.”

The wayfarers

We hosted two Sisters from the Daughters of St. Paul this weekend, and an hour and a half into their return drive, their 20 year old van died.  As they were waiting for us to come and pick them up, they decided to walk to an Applebee’s because they had a gift card.  Sr. B plugged in the address she had found in her phone’s GPS and they set off.  As they neared their destination, they were puzzled because they found themselves in the middle of a residential neighborhood.  Then they realized that the address that had been given them was for a Mr. & Mrs. Applebee.  !!

We had a good laugh about it, but are indeed wondering if Mr. & Mrs. Applebee end up having many turn around in their driveway.
