So I said... part 47


A co-worker was telling me about a patron interaction.

They said that a man came into the library and up to the front desk. This patron wasn't wearing a mask, which is required in our library, so my co-worker told him he had to wear one to be in our library due to county health policies. This co-worker gestured over to a box of disposable masks we have on the front desk as a helpful solution to the problem.

The man picked up one of the masks and said "How am I supposed to even wear this? I don't have an ear!" Then he showed my co-worker that he was indeed missing one ear."

So I said:

"You should have asked him if he had any paintings you could buy."


  1. And I thought I had it tough, wearing a mask AND hearing aids! [The mask loops tend t pull out the aids.]

    1. I have some that tie and stretch around the back of the head, but if a person wants to have fun with their missing ear I guess that's a way to do it.


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.
