I grew up with movies like The Sound of Music, and always associated a wimple with a nun in her habit. It was the most glamorous thing ever in my mind, and for many years I wanted to join a religious order so I could look like that.
As I got older I lost that idea but when I was invited to a fancy dress party I went for a nuns costume. On the way I had a minor traffic accident, and it was amusing to see how nice people were to me. I'd forgotten how I was dressed, so it's a good job I didn't curse when it happened!
