The ten minute announcement

The library is closing in ten minutes and I need to make an announcement. Here is what I am thinking:

The great Voltaire once said

“Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.” 

The library is closing in ten minutes, so that would be a good time to switch from reading to dancing. However if you aren't much for dancing you can take some of our books with you and continue reading long after we are closed. If you would like to take some of our books simply check them out at the appropriate kiosk or bring them to the service desk where we will do it for you. You have ten minutes left to do so, which should be just enough time.

That is my announcement then. 

This blog, on the other hand, never closes.

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
