Father Tierney StumblesBook - 2011
Joe's mind raced. The clinic was in a neighboring county, and he'd dressed down. He'd worn jeans, dirty tennis shoes, and the torn denim jacket he used for work in the parish garden. He'd even glued on a fake mustache, the one that he had bought for last year's Halloween party when he'd gone as Pancho Villa... Now he was booking it down a busy avenue like a thief after a heist. He'd run seven blocks and had just turned right toward the river and his Honda Civic. He'd have to slow down. He had to be careful. He tugged off the fake moustache and then threw it in the gutter. Joe hadn't wanted to park near the clinic, so he'd parked near the hospital. It was part of his plan. If any parishioners saw him, they'd think he was visiting the sick or tending to an emergency. God, Joe wished that were true. The truth was he was now one of the sick. Father Joe Tierney was HIV positive.
