My cry in the wilderness


A librarian came to the front desk with an old man. They were looking for the room meeting schedule. The librarian said the man was looking for the Rotary meeting. It wasn't scheduled anywhere.

Having nothing helpful to add I said "I think the Rotary should consider changing their name to Push Button to be more contemporary."

No one responded in any way.

So I'm telling you. 


  1. I'm partial to that sort of comment, too, and I generally get the same kind of reaction: none. Certainly none that is worthy of my wit. Wish we'd had more time to chat last week. You were laughing at me because I didn't recognize you right away, yes?

    1. I suppose I've written about it before: but stand at the front desk with some borderline psychopath who wont go away and no one comes to the desk, try to have a chat with an old friend you haven't seen in awhile and suddenly everyone needs help at the front desk! So, yes, I too was sad we didn't have more time!

      Oh, I don't think I was laughing at you. I think I was probably musing on the ravages of time that apparently made me unrecognizable in just a few years!

      It was nice to see you.


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.
