Paj Llamas


A longtime library patron came to the front desk. She was wearing a T-shirt that had a picture of a llama on it. It read:

"It is no prob llama"

She had a book she wanted to check out, but she had forgotten her library card.

Oh no!

That's okay. I could use her driver's license.

She didn't have her driver's license either!

Well, that's a... thing.

But having seen her come to the library for forty years, or whatever, I was pretty sure I maybe knew this person's name. "What's your last name?" I asked.

She told me, and at that point, her first name, from some mysterious place, immediately popped into my mind.

So I looked her record up and checked the book out.

This woman was not known to our library staff for her graciousness, but she nonetheless thanked me politely enough.

I was happy I could do it. "No prob llama." I replied.

She looked at me blankly and then exited.

I may have misunderstood her T-shirt.

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.
