Years ago two priests went on a Hawaiian vacation and thought they would make this vacation a real one by dressing in a way that would not let other people realize they were members of the clergy.
As soon as the plane landed the priests, still wearing their clergy wardrobe, headed for a store and bought some really outrageous shorts, shirts, sandals, sunglasses, and etc.
The next morning they went to the beach, dressed in their newly bought “tourist” garb and sat on their beach chairs enjoying drinks, the sunshine and the scenery when a drop dead gorgeous blonde in a tiny bikini came walking straight towards them.
They couldn’t help but stare at her.
As she passed by them, she smiled and said, “Good morning Father” and “Good morning Father,” nodding to each and addressing them individually.
They were both stunned: how in the world did she recognize them as priests?
The next day they went back to the store, bought even more outrageous outfits – these were so loud, you could hear them before you even saw them – and settled on the beach in their chairs to enjoy their Hawaiian vacation once again.
After a while, the same gorgeous blonde, wearing a string bikini this time, came walking toward them again.
They were glad they had sunglasses, because their eyes were about to pop out of their heads.
Once again, she approached them and greeted them with “Good morning Father” and “Good morning Father” to each one separately.
Then she started to walk away.
One of the priests couldn’t take being recognized by her and said, “Just a minute young lady. Yes, we are priests, and proud of it, but I have to know, how in the world did YOU know?”
“Oh Father, don’t you recognize me? I’m Sister Maria.”
