Growing Up is Hard to Do
Sister Brigid was teaching her young students one day and she asked each of them what they would like to be when they grew up.
Most of the girls said they wanted to be a nurse, or a housewife. One even said she wanted to be a nun, which pleased Sister Brigid very, very much.
She finally got to a sweet-faced little girl who responded, "When I grow up I want to be a prostitute."
Shocked through to her very soul, good Sister Brigid fainted on the spot.
Her students rushed to revive her.
When she finally came around, the Sister asked the little girl, "What did you say you wanted to be when you grew up?"
"A prostitute," the girl replied, honestly, "just like my mum."
"Oh thank the Lord," the relieved nun replied. "I thought you said a Protestant."
