You Go, Sisters!

I was leafing through old newspapers the other day and this article caught my attention. Some of you may not find this interesting, but growing up surrounded by sisters (from grade school to high school), this is one side I never pictured them to be. Its just that sisters I know are "boxed" as very isolated, quiet, prayerful, saintly, etc. So I was amused (yet again) when I read this.

My own postscript: When we were still in GS/HS, we always wondered: What do sisters wear when they go swimming? Do they wear bathing suits or their habits? Or do they wear their bathing suits under their habits? What do they look like in street clothes? Would we recognize them? I don't think I want to know. It doesn't matter now. This article has already changed my views about sisters in general. They will now and forever be "cool chicks" to me.

hi! bloghopping from donna and mami carmz's blogs :)

i once saw a picture of a nun, whom i used to live with in a dorm, swimming. :) they actually wear bathing suits with their habit's head cover, or whatever they call it (how about belo?). pero they were only swimming in an indoor pool without other people.

hehe. i read your entry and you said the answer doesn't matter anymore to you, pero hindi ko napigilan sarili ko magcomment, sensya na po. nuns have very special part in my life too and definitely are "cool chicks" :)
