     The CSO works with several distinct orders of Catholic nuns. As we were watching a hockey game last night, I had a stray thought:

     FWP: Say, do the nuns you work with ever ask about one another?
     CSO: You mean like, “How are things going with those other women?”

     FWP: Yeah, like that.
     CSO: No, but the orders are close. Individual sisters ask about sisters in another order all the time.

     FWP: But no competition?
     CSO: What would they compete over? Donors?

     FWP: Maybe over some highly rated postulant or novice. You know, “We’ll give you two first-round draft choices and a sister to be named later for Mary Smith.”
     CSO: Uh, no. But it would liven things up.
     FWP: Especially around the trading deadline.
     CSO: Yeah.

     I doubt she’ll suggest it to them. (Can you imagine the draft procedures?) But maybe she should.

  1. Fran, you literally made me laugh out loud with that exchange! You could even go a step farther by establishing a FFL. Fantasy Friars League. I know they're nuns but FNL doesn't roll of the tongue as easily.
