Day 16: Don’t tick off a Nun. Seriously.

26 Jun

Back in high school, rumor had it that one of my teachers had been a nun before she became a teacher. The only reason she became a teacher was that she had…um…practiced missionary positions with a priest. This was incredibly scandalous in my teeny tiny Christian town, especially since many residents believed Catholicism promoted idol worship.

One year, the high school theater troop performed The Flying Nun, resulting in a lovely collection of habits. A rather creative senior decided that those habits really should be put to good use before the moths ate completely through them, so he (or she) came up with an epic senior prank. On the last day of school, 20 or so seniors calmly walked into this teacher’s classroom and took their seats…dressed as nuns.

She was furious of course and stormed out of the room  screaming that these students would all pay for this wretched prank. She and the principal returned to an empty classroom, and to this day no one really knows who the group of pranksters were.

This owl is inspired by what I may or may not have witnessed…

      Thank you! They’re quite fun to draw. If you have an idea for one, shoot it to me, and I’ll try to create it and post it here.
