You learn something new everyday. Georgia May facebooked in saying she’d seen a Monk wearing crocs so here’s the story folks.
A Monk sat down next to me on the bus. I stifled a snort as I looked down to see a pair of Crocs peeping out from his traditional robes. I was sure I got away with it until I asked him for a bit of wisdom and he simply said “It’s 2014. Monks wear crocs: deal with it.”
I didn’t know what to do at first. Was this was a deeper piece of advice about refraining from judgement? But before I could fall any deeper into my thoughts the Monk began to laugh. Quietly at first and then big rib racking wheezing. We laughed the rest of the bus ride together.
I’m fairly sure it was just a joke, but I don’t think I’ll be so quick to judge next time.
