Photo: Sister Mary Reginald

Yes, there really was a Sister Mary Reginald.

The nuns at our school were Dominican sisters and always wore these full habits. Whenever a good wind kicked up, their white bibs would blow up and cover their faces. If you look closely ,you can see the rosary hanging from her waist.

One of the older nuns, Sister Marie Louise, used to grab her rosary really tight and start praying loudly if we were trying her patience in class. If that didn't help, she'd resort to swatting us with the rosary until we settled down.

Sister Mary Reginald preferred an old trick she'd learned in her softball days. She'd grab a blackboard eraser and throw a smooth pitch right at the head of the unwary offender. Posted by Hello

I'm a 40-something writer, artist, and Jill-of-All-Trades. For me, magic is looking at the ordinary and seeing the extraordinary. My writing tends to take me to unexpected places--not so surprising when I think about it. I had an unusual growing up and have always chosen the offbeat over the "safe". I prefer interesting people over beautiful ones, and I am fascinated by people's stories. What I love most about life is its glorious imperfections and fantastic plot twists.
