TALETYPE CLASSIFICATION OF THE STORY
My mother always
wanted a nun in the family. After my sister failed to
stay in the teaching order she entered, my mother put
the pressure on me. I decided to make a retreat with 5
of my friends who all wanted to become nuns and another
girl who thought we were nutsóbut who saw a retreat as a
free vacation. After many mistakes, which tried the
patience of the nuns, and much soul searching, there
were some surprising choices made.
