Padre Pio's Manicure

Am I getting any billable work done today? Yes, I am. I cannot, however, resist stretching my lunch break to zoom in on this snippet from Whispers in the Loggia. Exhumed for a viewing to mark the 40th anniversary of St. Pio of Pietrelcina's death, Archbishop Domenico D'Ambrosio noted that Padre Pio's dead, encrypted hands:
"looked like they had just undergone a manicure."
How come my manicures don't last this long? Is it because I refuse to spend more than ten bucks and leave before the polish has fully dried? Or is it because I'm no saint?


  1. LOL. Oh, Meredith. What would this dreary world do without you? Thanks for the laugh!

  2. I laughed out loud at this one. So glad I came across your blog.

  3. Happy to be of service. I LOVE to make people crack up laughing!
