    I had the same thing happen to me regarding my best friend – we were “too close”. We were not lesbians, just friends. This was in Grade 10. I don’t know how Mother Elaine would deal with society now. I can picture her jumping up & spinning around like Rumplestilskin, clenching & shaking her little fists. I had her for Latin class & dreaded every session. Walking up & down the aisles, swinging her crucifix. She had broken her arm & it was in a cast & sling. We were all afraid she would hit us in the head as she walked by. She called everyone “Dearie” and used sports references when commenting on our performances – “On the last test you didn’t even get to 1st base, Dearie”. (shudder…)

    I remember the bravest among us would snap our cuffs to drive Mother Elaine into a tizzy.
