genuflect \JEN-yuh-flekt\, intransitive verb:
1. To bend the knee or touch one knee to the ground, as in worship.2. To be servilely respectful or obedient; to grovel.
This word brings me back to my Catholic School days. Genuflecting before you went into the pew.
A sign of respect and humility, I presume.
Catholic School is what made me want to be a writer. We did a lot of writing and I was noticed for my talent. Science wasn’t such a big deal. It was a “special” as they call music and art nowadays. We didn’t have science on a regular basis.
We had religion every day. We had English everyday. (Literacy as they call it now.)
But not science. Hence I messed up that part of the test when I moved to public school.
But, that was okay, because I knew in fifth grade, in the Annunciation BVM School, that I was going to be a writer.
When did you know what your calling in life was?
