Reasons I Became an Episcopal Priest

1. All night ladies shoe saleswoman was unavailable or did not exist.
2. I thought that black is really slimming.
3. There wasn't much happening in my social life at the time, but being a nun did not seem like so much fun.
4. I lost a bet.
5. I won a bet.
6. I needed an excellent way to fend off male suitors just by saying I am a priest.
7. I enjoyed gathering new male weirdos that are drawn to me when I say I am a priest.
8. I wanted to build up the muscles in my arms by lifting heavy chalices.
9. I like getting into deep theological discussions with anyone in airports, at bars, after exercise class...
10. I love God, and I love people. Somehow being a priest made these two intersect.
