Oh! Rice, I remember during a Science lesson, my teacher dropped some Mercury on the counter, & started trying to get it together again, & the more she tried, the more the droplet numbers increased! We were in stitches, it was so funny!
You're SO right, rice! Frustrated old cows', many of 'em!
I felt sorry for the Boarders' who were there all the time. They weren't even allowed to TALK to us Day Scholars', for fear they'd get asked to come home with us on a week-end, to break the monotony for them!
We took Boarders' from another School, girl's who came from outback Stations, & we used to go horse-riding together! It was great fun!
Rice and donjo, I'm sorry you've both had encounters with 'penguins with bad attitudes', as you've called them. I have a few friends who are nuns and they are among the kindest, wisest, and lighthearted women I know.
Gosh! Fancy not be allowed to talk to each other. Must have made for a strange environment. ( It's okay, Vee, I'm not damaged. I was being silly. Not sure I have even met a nun. I went to a state school.)
Oh! Vee, yes some were good. Some were just plain nasty, bitter, & twisted.
One, who was fabulous, had a brother, who was a priest in TPNG (as it was). I met him whilst on Yule Island. Just a really nice Aussie bloke! One day, at School, I was in Grade X, his Sister comes to me, & says there was someone in the Parlour to meet me! I couldn't figure out who that'd be? I walked in to see Fr Rob standing there! Was lovely to chat with him again, & catch up on Territory news!
