That Hammer

That Hammer

A job to be done.

Walking along a back street a nun came out of the door to an old people’s rest home on one side of the street. She disappeared into a door opposite, only to appear moments later, awkwardly wielding a large hammer. We just looked at each other and could not help laughing. I just managed a picture before she gave in to embarrassment and disappeared back into where the hammer was needed to carry out some urgent job.
