Sister Erma and the “King of Infinite Space”

   Kate used to tell me a story of a Nun named Sister Erma who taught at St. Joe’s Academy in Cleveland who had the most delightful saying for those who thought they had all the answers and were above everyone else.

The good Sister would look them up and down and say,  Hmmm…”I shall close myself up into a Walnut Shell and call myself  King of the Infinite Space”, having met a few resident Walnutians…I couldn’t stop laughing.
