The Saints Confer by Laura Moncur 05-08-07

When I worked as a secretary a few years ago, I wrote entries about St. Jude and Buddha. They sat at my desk, watching over me and I imagined what they would say about me:

The two of them sat with me at that desk until I unceremoniously forgot them when I was laid off. I told myself I didn’t care that I forgot them and I knew I wasn’t about to go back there to get them, so I wrote them off for good.

I was lying to myself because I felt a surge of joy when I found them left on my doorstep in a FedEx envelope. My former coworker brought them back to me and I was so grateful to her. I never thanked her. I guess I’m kind of a heel for that…

They were joined by St. Lucia:

She has been watching over me and guiding my words for a few years as well.

The trio sit on the windowsill in front of my desk. The other day, it looked as if they were conferring. I wonder what they say about me now…

St. Jude: She just keeps linking to other websites and including other people’s videos. Is that really writing?

St. Lucia: Not enough for me.

Buddha: Quit talking, you two! You make her look insane.



  1. Oh!! I want the Buddha to confer about me! Hi Buddha!

    Note to self: must get trio of saints.

    Note to self: new research project- find out which saints I want to get.

  2. Saint Jude: Braidwood has just commented on Laura’s blog.

    Saint Lucia: How can you tell?

    Saint Jude: She’s laughing and happy.

    Buddha: Braidwood is a good girl. Laura should visit her more often.
