Best three rolling things I've seen in NYC in the last couple of days:

  • A nun in full habit rollerblading down the Hudson River Greenway

  • A guy on a unicycle juggling three bowling pins IN THE RAIN

  • An elderly lady in a fur coat, who you'd expect to see stepping out of a Lincoln Continental, riding her folding bike down Broadway

Any other sightings?

Nuns are good luck

Yes!! I've also seen that nun on my ride into work. No one believed me when I described what I had seen.

Juggling clubs

FYI, no one juggles bowling pins except as a gag. They were probably using juggling clubs. They are closer to the clubs that were used for club swinging as exercise, than they are to bowling pins.

OK, I was not the guy on the unicycle, but a few years ago it could have been me.

I've seen a nun in full long-skirted white habit on her bike doing laps in Central Park mid-afternoons during the week. I wonder if she and the roller blading sister are friends.

"There is a book written by ""The Jogging Nun"" about the seasons of the year in Riverside Park. My little brother studied under her -- Latin and maybe Botany and, please, no bad habits jokes -- at St Hilda's School on W114St.

I don't know if we have on our hands one tri-athletic nun or a new trend. But God bless 'em, i say. I can't wait till the holy sisters start showing up on the SIGs. In fact, i would elect a few of them to a new Committee of Tolerance to oversee postings on the message board.

So now i've confessed my secret bond. . . . . .perhaps it's rooted in my affinity for comfortable shoes."
