My quixotic mission to let each piece of paper remain separate


I am getting a lot of requests tonight at the front desk of the library for a stapler. 

"Can I use your stapler?" People ask.

"Yes." I answer graciously. "But not the staples."

Long, confused pause.

"How about a paperclip?" They ask.

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.
