The nuns and the dispensary

I learned this much later. But when I was a child we lived on the roof top in a house of the new wing of Mount Alvernia¬†Hospital. On the other side of the roof was the nun’s quarters and on the floor below was their convent. Sometimes, the nuns used to baby sit me. When I would not go to sleep, at least one of them would slip down to the dispensary and get some sedatives to put me to sleep.
