    Was looking up something this morning and ran across the following. I don't know, it just struck me funny and then odd and then no really, what the heck do they mean? 'or creature'? no I haven't looked up creature. I'm almost afraid to. :p

    "A novice is a person or creature who is new to a field or activity. The term is most commonly applied in religion and sports.

    Racehorses and showdogs came to mind pretty quickly. Then my mind wandered towards monkeyjockeys and flea circuses and I had to stop and nap.

    Haha of course it's boring dear swampwitch ;) but it's also my kid's education so I'm interested. Good to see you as always.

    I'm still trying to come up with a snappy answer to what a novice creature in religion could be...

    Since it's taking so long, I guess 'snappy' is out. :oops:

    Not boring at all. But my mind kept going to goofy places.;)

    As far as a creature novice in a religious sense, I got nuthin'.:D

    I think novice is used for trainee nuns and monks (from "novitiate")or whatever these callings are titled in other religions.

    And I think "novice" is pretty widely used to denote young sportsmen and women.

    But the "creature" and "sports" connection has me stumped.

    I lean toward Swamp's "horseracing" though.

    Yeah I think novice would work for racing or even for maybe tracking dogs, stuff like that. Like the novice St. Bernard brings cold beer instead of hot rum to the avalanche victims. :p
