Monk Pranks

I totally wanna be a monk boss. I’d get all the new monks ready on their first day:

Me: “OK monks, repeat after me. I do solemnly swear …”

Monks: “I do solemnly swear …”

Me: “… to undertake a vow of silence …”

Monks: “… to undertake a vow of silence …”

Me: “… starting …”

Monks: ” … starting … ”

And then I’d walk out.

Years later, when they’re ready to graduate not-talking, I would gather them all again, wait for a hush to settle over the crowd, and continue “… now.”

Meh.
