Things you can't do in an Alabama library


Despite the title, maybe you can do this in an Alabama library. The range of my library work experience is extraordinarily narrow even as it is unfathomably deep.

A woman came up to the front desk with a wide-eyed three-year-old child. "You are here for a momentous occasion." The woman proclaimed. "This is her first time at a library and she is amazed!" 

I looked at the small child. The small child looked at me. "You will be a full-fledged socialist in no time at all." I said.

Now that I think of it, I should have given her a sticker.

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.
