ANOTHER NUN'S STORY

ONE DAY A VERY YOUNG SISTER WAS TEACHING IN HER NEW FIRST GRADE ROOM
ONE OF THE LITTLE BOYS IN HER ROOM CAME TO HER DESK AND SAID THAT HE
DID NOT FEEL WELL. SISTER TOLD HIM TO RETURN TO HIS PLACE AND
PERHAPS HE MIGHT FEEL BETTER IN A FEW MINUTES. A FEW MINUTES LATER
THE LITTLE BOY RETURNED TO THE DESK AND SAID THAT HE WAS STILL SICK.
HE HAD A "TUMMY ACHE." SISTER ASKED HIM IF HE KNEW WHERE THE
PRINCIPAL'S OFFICE WAS. THE BOY SAID THAT HE DID AND WAS SENT TO SE
THE PRINCIPAL. MM
SISTER HAPPENED TO TURN AROUND A FEW MINUTES LATER AND SEE THE SAME
BOY SEATED IN HIS SEAT WITH HIS SHIRT UNBUTTONED. QUICKLY SHE WENT
OVER TO HIM AND ASKED IF HE HAD GONE TO THE PRINCIPAL'S OFFICE. HE
SAID THAT HE HAD AND THAT SHE TOLD HIM TO STICK IT OUT UNTIL LUNCH
TIME.
