The Physics Route

I have a friend who is a Catholic priest.  I know him since we were boys, running the playground at St. Mary’s grammar school, and how our ways parted!  He went on to study at the Diocesan seminary, and I went on to Manhattan College to become a physicist.  But for me, the Lord had other plans.

I found out that if you’re partially color blind, you don’t go on to study to be a physicist (you can’t use the spectroscope) so I fell back on what I learned so well in the grammar school, the English language.  I became an English teacher.

I think when it comes time to cash in, he’ll get the bigger sum than I, but I made a good friend of the Lord’s mother, so she may let me in through the back door.
