… I want to be a hermit and live in a cave. I’d spit at people and never bathe.
Mom(distractedly): That’s nice, dear.
I thought that you already did that….
My wife thinks that what I’m doing when I’m in my “man cave”
Start small. Maybe with the spitting.
And wear camel hair too?
There once was a girl named “CC.”She wanted a nun just to be.She’d live in a caveand never would bathe,And spit when the folk came to see.
So smelly, would you still have a penchant to veil? You may get bugs trapped up there, underneath. I’m just saying…Dang, I’m all itchy now and I’m clean…
You been reading the Desert Fathers lately?
You could go one better and be a holy fool a la St Basil the Blessed of Moscow. Among other weird things he did, he often went around unkempt and naked, and often ate a large sausage on the steps of churches on Good Friday, to show the sinfulness and hypocrisy of the “good people” of Moscow.
