Me: So where do you come from?
Sister Rose: Vietnam.
Me: I don't think there are many nuns in Seattle.
Sister Rose: There are actually more than you'd think ... most of them don't dress in the traditional style like we do.
Me: So you're saying the American nuns have gotten out of the habit?
Sister Rose: (giggle)
I walked her and her two companions up the hill to BCC since the bus they were on didn't quite make it all the way, and she said "May God bless and protect you" when I headed back down the (fairly steep) hill to my office. It was kind of a nice way to start the day, but with weather like this I'd take any excuse to go for a walk.
