“But are you glad you went to college? Was it a good experience?”

I suppose it was. Althought I can’t remember a single thing I learned. Except for Latin, and that’s only because the nuns literally beat it into us and I use it sometimes for the crossword.”

There were nuns at Radcliffe?”

Yes, it was all nuns.”

Are you sure? At Radcliffe?”

Maybe it was high school.”

But you aren’t Catholic,” I said. “I don’t think you ever went to a parochial school.”

Well, I distinctly remember nuns with sticks walking up and down the aisles as we recited Latin. Maybe it was a show I was in, but I doubt it because nuns don’t beat children in musicals.”
