Trusting the audience

A library patron just came to me at the front desk. He had two special request items to pick up, Interlibrary loans we call them, items we borrowed from another system to loan to him. We keep these behind the desk. One was a book: Making Professional Charcuterie. The other was a classical music CD: Great Organ Favorites.

I said to the patron "At first glance these items seem unrelated, but now I see how they belong together." He looked at me blankly.

Fortunately you get it.

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.
