Death of a library angel

A librarian was printing out a list of rental dvds that needed to be weeded. The printer is back by our phones area and when she came over to pick up her list she cried out. 

Well, she exclaimed, sort of.

Or maybe she said "Huh."

There was an angel on her printout!

She showed it to us, me and another of my co-workers. There was a strange, large piece of inked fuzz, plastered into the paper and almost three dimensionally vivid. It looked exactly, clearly, unmistakably like a gauzy, beautiful, winged angel, albeit one without a head.

We gasped.

"If you took a picture and posted it on Reddit or catholics.com it could go viral!" I exclaimed.

The librarian laughed and wiped the angel away with a damp towel.


  1. Aw, I would have loved to see a picture of that.

    1. I understand. It was so beautiful, in a scuzzy sort of way.

  2. Ahh, those librarians...no sense of adventure...

    1. Always so delighted to have librarians run down a bit here!


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.
