In the distance, I could hear the drones of a few nuns reciting the rosary inside the church. That church that always looked somber, and would often give me the feeling of being a great sinner. Everything in it always seemed so slow and meticulous and organized. It was very depressing. Though there is one time something frightening happened there.

Have you ever had the chance to re-do something you love over and over ? Like drinking a cold and nicely fizzy can of your favorite beer on a hot afternoon?
