1. Anybody who studied in a Catholic school knows they're wired differently.

2. When you were a kid, the teachers, nuns, and priests made you memorize all prayers known to mankind.

3. Every first Friday of the month, you'd wear your gala uniform and attend Mass because that's the only way first Fridays should be spent.

4. You grew up in an academic environment full of rules. And who are you to complain?

5. All your life, you've greeted respectable people the proper way.
