Description: Nun on a Train
At midnight one middle age man was waiting at a train station to cross
the country to back east to see his relative. As he stepped up into the
train car he noticed that the car was almost empty except a young
beautiful nun sat by herself reading a bible.
The man came and sat near by her hoping to getsome companionship
during the long ride. However, the nun was paying no attention
to him. She just kept on reading bible without even looking up to him nor
saying a word. However as time went by slowly and silently, it made
the man more and more anxious to start conversation.
But he did not know how to start.
The man then put his hand on the nun's lap. The nun blushed with a
little bit of anger. She turn around and said:
Nun : Dear sir, do you believe in god?
Man : Yes, I do.
Nun : Have you read the bible ? You know it is wrong to put your hand
on my lap.Perhaps you should go home and read line 23 on page 157.
The man withdrew his hand and sat quietly till the train reached the
East coast. Next day, people found out that he shot himself in his
room while the bible lay open on page 157. The line 23 read:
"Heaven is a little bit higher."
