January 28, 2013
Two days of depositions with the same nun, a white-haired 69-year-old with a smooth, unlined, perhaps too pink complexion, soft-spoken, who speaks as if she is composing and parsing sentences in her sensible noggin for good transcription effect, perfect for Central Casting if ever they needed to fill a role for a classic, timeless Midwestern nun. For some reason all of a sudden I realize, "This nun takes showers just like non-nuns," and picture the pins and needles of hot water cascading over her starched whimple, her pink and white naked body not merely blurred or pixilated but completely absent.
