Almost a true story


I was talking about nothing with one of my co-workers and she made a little joke about something, and I distinctly heard someone say "Good one!"

But I looked around and it was just the two of us. So we kept chatting and she was talking about how one of her library classes was dumping a lot of pointless work on her, and I heard "But you always do so well with those projects. You're so smart and such a good worker!"

I looked down. "Was that your shoes?" I asked amazed.

"Yeah." She replied, maybe slightly embarrassed. "They offer a lot of support."


  1. Audible groan from New Hampshire. A groan of admiration...that was a good one.


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.
